The existing drainage system in the UN Compound is found to be non-efficient in draining out water and wastes from the compound, especially when there is heavy rainfall. Due to La Nina effect, the rainfall this year and in the coming year are expected to be more than usual and thus causing flood. The poor drainage system causes water stagnancy inside the compound and thus causing damages to the building and to other assets and properties. The recent flash flood caused by heavy rainfall in April 2021 is a stark example of such damages. Therefore, improvement of the drainage system needs immediate attention and needful rework.
