This department seems only capable of issuing warnings... it certainly doesn't live-up to it's illustrious title.

There are only 3 real, permanent, solutions for the Capital;

  1. Move it to a different city (or build a new one on higher ground).
  2. Lift the whole thing up a couple of meters (possibly just the important bits, let the rest sink).
  3. Venice; embrace the water, make a feature of it.

Recent years flooding around the world has shown us that no man-made flood defences are perfect.
