Hi Nicole, I am a development practitioner working with a unique Agriculture focused Water Harvesting technology called #Bhungroo whereby we are alleviating water woes of small & marginalized farmers by securing their water underground. We have successfully done the demonstration of the technology last year in Ghana after implementing it across 9 Indian states suffering with flash floods and droughts! How can we collaborate with you and your forum for advancing our work which is in direct tandem with at least 3-4 SDGs?
