Ambrose commented on Fog Farms - Drinking Water from Humidity

Well the issues here really are the focus. Most development around agriculture/ food security in the developing world has been centered around training and distribution of seed packs. But one of the greatest limiting factors to production is actually water for production. There have been no purposive measures put in place to specifically address water shortage. You will find that in some areas rains cause flash floods which even destroy crop lands with no attempts to have such water stored say in canals. It will need some capital outlay and a commercialization drive around certain crops to address the cost- benefit analysis issues. Formidable changes in community development are not necessarily those centered around the present trend but also those that look at scalability, adoption and sustainability. I have no doubt that if such thoughts are given ground to flourish surely we shall reap big.

I would be more than willing to attend one of such meetups here in Uganda.

This idea of community empowerment using local resources, people's capabilities coupled with financial support from without is a powerful tool with a sustainability aspect built in. It can however, be replicated in more than one locality with more or less the same outcomes. My dream is to see this idea implemented to improve not only the survival chances of children under five but also serve as a model for community development using meager resources and women at its fore front.
