Well I believe it is a great idea which would not only ensure that the urban communities are resilient to climate change but would ensure that climate change problem is addressed to a certain extent since the idea itself ensures environmental sustainability while providing economic gains for the slum dwellers. I believe in developing countries it is imperative that the government should actively promote this model as this could provide an alternate development model while also being environment friendly.
Hey Susan, I believe you are doing great work and it has the potential to probably bring change in various refugee communities around the world.. We urgently need change agents who can serve the needs of these communities in a customised manner so that they take interest in these initiatives. Further focus should primarily be on skills training so that they could make a livelihood which is critical for their development..
I believe it is imperative to create a value chain with regards to college education and for that it is imperative to link the recruiters and the students so that the course curriculum and may be faculty to some extent could be driven by the recruiters need. We need to make this education specific and need to link with utility. We got to incentivise education.. In the current model, the value addition is zilch but they have to bear the fees etc.
