The trick will be finding a way to capture excess water for dry periods, he said.
If we can take advantage of the enhanced winter rainfall, we can hopefully get through the drying trends the rest of the year. Trapping that winter precipitation will be a challenge, however, especially since it's likely to come more in the form of rain than snow due to the warming climate.
Historically, snow in the mountains feeds reservoirs and provides water to agriculture when it is needed in the summer, but rain will just run off unless it is captured. Allen's findings also bode ill for California's fire season. The state's new norm could mimic -- or surpass -- the fire season of , the worst in California's history, as wet winters encourage lush spring growth that will quickly parch during the hot and dry season, becoming wildfire fuel.

The Aldea Chiboi community does not get any other kind of support from international and national organisations. When asked for any advice to give to the organisations who are working on this project, Manuela has no doubt that the only solutions for her community to survive in the coming years are the re-establishment of cash transfer projects and the creation of an irrigation system.
The idea is for the community to have the possibility to buy their own necessities and to produce their own food. Manuela as many other members of her community are scared about the effects of climate change in the region. This year it rained only twice and we are worried about these changes in the climate.
Years ago, we also had fruit plants but without rain, we do not have fruits anymore.
