A way of collecting fresh water to support urban slums communities even in drought.
EXPLAIN YOUR IDEA
Air Drop would particularly benefit people on a local urban slum community scale in areas that either rely on growing their own food as a source of income or suffer from a shortage of rainfall. It is easy to implement as the simplicity of the device makes it cheap and it is easy to install; overall, this makes it widely accessible to many communities.
HOW DOES YOUR IDEA TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE CONTEXT OF URBAN SLUMS AND CLIMATE CHANGE?
The invention of Air Drop, which was created by Edward Linacre, takes into account the context of urban slums because in order to improve their livelihoods we cannot simply knock it down and rebuild it better than before. It is about small changes that not only help but aim to allow people to learn and therefore continue the process y themselves and therefore make them more self-sufficient. The idea connects very well with charities such as water aid who aim to provide water for people who no access to clean, drinking water.
