Hello Alhaji Bukar,
I really like you idea on "Using Biochar to reclaim degraded (desert) land back into productivity" Biochar is a panacea to most global degenerative system.
However, time is really NOT on our side, we have just about a week to go. Now, try to form Team/Partnerships with organizations that could help promoting your work.
Give a full description of your selected place – Borno State of Nigeria. Provide information that would be helpful for an outsider who has never been to Borno State State, Nigeria so that a stranger/visitor can better understand the area.
Go ahead and describe the current (2020) and the future (2050) challenges that food system faces in Borno. Afterwards, explain clearly how your Vision will address the challenges described in the previous question.
In addition, provide a high level description of how Borno and the lives of its People will be different in 30 years to come (2050) than they are at present (2020).
Finally, how do you describe your Vision for a regenerative and nourishing food future Borno and its People for 2050?
Try and work hard… I wish you the very best Alhaji Bukar.
Regards,
Md Auwal Hassan
