NGC Launches New Portal

The National Gas Company has launched a Climate Adaptation and Resilience Portal.

The Climate Adaptation and Resilience Portal will incorporate an interactive Geographic Information Systems (GIS) interface with maps, charts, and other tools.

NGC says the portal will assist the wider society in planning their daily activities in order to mitigate potential climate threats.

The Climate Adaptation Portal will also provide alerts on natural hazards such as landslips, riverine alerts, air quality, and seismic occurrences.

NGC’s Assistant Manager Sustainability, Mario Singh, notes rising temperatures have worsened extreme weather events such as hurricanes, wild fires, and heat waves.

Mr. Singh says all the data is showing the West Coast of Trinidad will be particularly impacted by rising sea levels in the future. He mapped out the worst case scenario.
