Driving climate action through resilient water Infrastructure through new water and climate financing options for local action
Building sustainable, resilient, repairable, water and sanitation infrastructure for the people at the last mile.
How does your idea apply new technologies to make agriculture and water systems more resilient in the face of climate threats?
it’s the incorporation of the machine learning and predictive analytics providing insights on real-time information through a cloud system of water situations thus integrating both technical and human-centered design challenge from the use of sensors.we are providing a water contamination, recontaminant and finally water use detecting which is enabled via sophisticated algorithm and predictive analytics.To provudereal time information through a'' google map like" cloud information for decision
What early, lightweight experiment might you try out in your own community to find out if the idea will meet your expectations?
By using the lean approach in working out the system and making the solution out of the user.
We are excited to learn about ideas at diverse stages of development. At what stage would you currently classify your idea as? (multiple choice)
Research & Early Testing: I am exploring my idea, gathering the inspiration and information I need to test it with real users.
How do you plan to grow or scale this idea?
Currently i am working utilizing the innovation Hub here in Nairobi and working close collaboratively with Research institution and University.Having units in four pilot locations by the end of this year, with additional 50 units by November 2017.Commit with MFIs, NGOs and distributors to discuss the optimal roll out strategy based on rigorous testing and validation of a ' Micro payment model’enabled through GPS/GIS technology.Then scale-up and scale-out our solution.
What skills, input or guidance from the OpenIDEO community would be most helpful in building out or refining your idea?
Getting of tangible feedback and Understanding better how to implement programs to address equity, economics, or education and also gain perspective to identify common threads, new challenges, and new solutions.Not only solve problems but to analyse issues with the perspective of human centered design
This idea emerged from:
This has been from an underlying problem that my community is facing at home with access to water and clean water and its intergration to agriculture because of the people who majority are the bottom of the pyramid.More so to make the matter worse its the worsening situation drought crisis in my region in Kenya.There is need to develop climate resilient solution to tackle climate change solution at household level.Their is need for social,cultural and environmental cohesiveness.
