This project seeks to develop a methodology for optimal design and criteria of constructed wetlands. By analysing a properly designed and operated constructed wetlands, it will demonstrate how this low-tech alternative can collect and treat wastewater, provide sanitation, generate plant-sourced energy, create biodiversity shelters, and clean polluted sites.
Illiteracy is the curse of any country. If it's sustained in a large part of a country’s population, for example farmers who simultaneously are a great contributor to a country’s development, it is especially severe. Then these farmers do not know the basic education and have a lack of technological, ecological and different diversified knowledge about agricultural practices. So in this modern age, it is not possible to develop the agricultural level or total countries development without this large number of population. So Indeed proper education among farmers is very important to sustainable development. Over 80% of Bangladesh's workforce is rural, yet the vast majority are extremely poor, illiterate and politically marginalized. These farmers live in harsh and degrading conditions, earning a pittance working for landlords. Their situation is worsened through an absence of political and social awareness and a lack of capacity to defend their rights. As a result of this, they are often exploited and oppressed. Women face an even more difficult situation due to the persistence of conservative religious structures that serve to oppress women, and School of Farmers works to increase women's awareness and rights and campaigns to eliminate the discrepancy between the treatment of women and men. School of Farmers believes literacy is a catalyst for the empowerment of the rural laborers and small farmers. School of Farmers literacy programme and rights training workshops provide workers with the means to organize themselves and to improve their educational and practical skills, both of which will equip them to better demand that their rights to be respected.
Egypt is one of the vulnerable countries which is affected by the changing of the climate due to global warming. Various effects including seawater intrusion that leads to increasing salinity in delta, agriculture and food insufficiency, water scarcity. Extreme rainfall events “flash floods” are observed at the coastal zones and Sinai in Egypt as one of the impacts of climate change which causes catastrophic consequences. Last few years during the extreme weather event a huge damage is occurred in Delta area and in coastal zones, where more than two hundred died and more than million Fadden of agriculture land submerged, more over two villages were completed destroyed. The project aims to expand the dissemination of rainfall maps and predictions regularly through using a Mobile application to alert the executive agencies at local areas of the storm. Which gave them the chance to take actions lead to less damage and absorb the storm safely, an example of actions; closing high roads, reduce the release from the dam to lower the level in canals and drains, stop irrigation pumps, and prepare the equipment needed in such emergency. The teams’ field of experience is in meteorology, hydrology, as well as climate change studies.
Providing a clean, sustainable water source by constructing a 15,000L underground water tank utilizing rainwater from a rain-catchment system. Furthermore, planting dozens of vegetable gardens in key areas of the village, building community, and providing farm animals i.e. goats, chickens, cows, for grazing, milk, and poultry.
