Last week, we dove into an especially practical example of innovating to improve the plight of agriculturalist. Or, more specifically, those who benefit from their yields. I’m happy that this week we have another agricultural innovation around water – but one that works in a very different way, solving a very different problem.
My guest for the 175th Terms of Reference Podcast is Sanjay Prasad. He’s working in an area where there is abundant, but very intermittent water supplies. His innovation, delivered under the project name SPONGE, captures water from dew and fog and transfers it to the soil where it can keep plants thriving.
I hope you’ll enjoy this episode where we talk about life in the Himalayas, how an exceedingly simple technology is changing agricultural practices and how his organization is ensuring women and marginalized groups are core beneficiaries of the programme.
