Warka

Problem to be solved: Water Production

As water shortage is a serious issue in many parts of the world, a means of efficiently harnessing
safe drinking water from thin air without the need of expensive infrastructure could be a real
lifesaver. Warka Water will sport a canopy that offers shade to people drawing the collected water.

Impact:

Warka Water mainly uses local natural and biodegradable materials. The tower can be easily built
and maintained by the local communities using simple tools. With training and guidance, the
locals can easily build and maintain the Warka tower.
