Explain your idea in details:

My idea is to store rain and flood water in aerated tanks during the rainy season for farming more especially during dry season. My village and most rural areas in northern part of Namibia every year, received rainwater in large quantities accompanied by excessive flood. Most of the time, the rains that cause these floods fall in Angola, then flow into Namibia's Cuvelai basin and end up filling the flood plains in Namibia. These floods in the northern parts of the country, often causes not only damage to infrastructure but also loss of life (1). Namibia's climate in rural areas is hot, dry; rainfall sparse and erratic (2). People only do agriculture farming during the rainy season from December to May and during the dry season from May to December; their fields are dry waiting for the rain season again. As a result, Namibia is known to suffer from natural disaster of prolonged periods of drought (2). My idea is to do agricultural activities in my field during the dry season. The initiative will educate the community to start agricultural farming in their field during the dry season in order to produce food throughout the year. If the nation can start using the country's resources at the right time then drought will be a thing of a past. Citizens need to come up with initiatives of producing food in the country because Namibia is the 141st largest country in the world by population. It is the 34th largest country in the world by area with 824,292 square kilometers (3) but people lack food because they do not engage much in agriculture throughout the year. Even animals used to die because of drought (4). http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2017/03/northern-namibia-braces-worst-flood-memory-170317113756362.html (1) http://www.indexmundi.com/factbook/compare/south-africa.namibia (2) http://www.ifitweremyhome.com/compare/ZA/NA (3) http://www.ifrc.org/en/news-and-media/news-stories/africa/namibia/losing-crops-and-livestock-to-extensive-drought-in-namibia-72186/ (4).

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

My idea will impact communities and educate them on water storage and usage in order to produce food throughout the year. Apart from food production, this initiative will also create employment in my village. As I said earlier, this water used come in large quantities even schools used to shut down, some villages used to be isolated and cannot be accessed by four-wheel drive vehicles due to excessive water but this water used to dry up without being stored. Namibia is currently in economical crisis and many people lost jobs because of this crisis. What will remedy the situation in Namibia is just for people to start producing more food through agriculture projects. This business will be a life-saving opportunity because currently people from my village and nearby villages have to travel on daily basis for 10km to 40km to go and buy these products e.g. tomatoes, onions, green pepper, spinach, potatoes etc. at a nearby town Oshakati. Apart from doing a business, I will also motivate and educate the community to start farming even at small scale just for them to have even little food but, not to rely on buying everything and through this there will be no poverty in an forms, no more hunger, food security will be achieved, nutrition will be improved and promote sustainable agriculture.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

This idea has a positive impact in the community and will benefit many people in terms of employment and food productions. The main objectives of this idea are to promote healthy environment, business profitability, and to improve both the social and economic development in the village. The production process starts at digging underground PVC pipes to collect water from the flood plains and pump it in the aerated tanks. From there, the field will be prepared for farming and I will engage relevant people with skills on agriculture to ensure that the products will be of high quality. I will then employ unemployment people from my community since this will be a profit making business. The products that will be generated in the field will be sold in my community and to near-by villages at the cheap price. I will establish marketing channels to be a supplier of agricultural products to the northern areas. The production cost of this business will be very low because there will be no paying of water monthly usage and this will be a self sustain business through it is profit revenue. I am sure this business will collaborate and or give birth to more business like livestock farming of pigs, chicken even aquaculture.

Hello fellow passenger,

You might have heard the famous song "What I've done" by Linkin park. The lyrics have been beautifully carved by the late singer Chester Bennington. The song covers the ways in which our so called development has helped only a handful of the upper society members, whereas people are still living in poverty.

We have a great platform here which is urging super brains from around the world to come together and collaborate with their ideas and help make this world a better place to live in. You have been a part of this community and I congratulate you on your effort that you have put in.

Thanks once again and all the best for the future

Comrades,
In this fight for a sustainable future, what we need is innovation; something which is not necessarily new, but which makes us look at things from a different angle.

I believe this is one of the major motives of this community which we are a part of. Taking one step together hand in hand towards our goal is the only way we can achieve it.

So I wish you the very best in this endeavour of yours and hope to see you together in the new tomorrow

Hello Karolina,

This is really a great idea! Many countries of the third world are dependent on rain-fed agriculture. Storing ran and flood water is a good solution for such countries. You should stand for your idea whether you win or lose this competition.

All the best.

Hello,
Being a part of India's well known Entrepreneurship Cell of the most prestigious engineering college in India, I have interacted with many startup enthusiasts, have got to know how they think and what are some qualities that set them apart from the ones who are not able to see their idea through. Reading through your idea, I have realised that your idea has that spark which can help it become a successful venture. Coupled with its aim to help the society achieve its goals sustainably, your idea can be something quite helpful for the same.

But before it's implementation, you need to do a "pre-mortem" check on how it can fail. This would prepare you for any uncalled-for circumstances and help you prepare for them accordingly.

Lastly, I would like you to have a look at our idea, GreenSpace, and share your views about the same.

Wishing you the best,
Team GreenSpace.

I am deeply sorry if this message bothered you, but everyone on this platform wants to go to the finals with his/her idea and makes all it is possible to get there. Maybe not all the actions are fair. Some participants copy the same meaningless message and paste it to all ideas. I just do marketing. Again, I am sorry if this message disturbed you.

Hi Andrei

I appreciate your comment and questions. The main idea of my project is to fight hunger in my community through agriculture using flood water that used to dry up without being utilized and I believe food productions bring businesses. On how sustainable this idea can be, I am referring you to go back to my idea again, I think you will pick up answers to your questions. Again, I am looking for idea or inputs on with what can i use this flood water for especially in agriculture? Namibia is a country that suffers from severe draught and we need to invest more in agricultural sector.

August 5, 2017 19:51

Hy Carolina
Just like an ant,preparing for the times of hunger,your project is really one o the best I have seen on this platform so far.I see here that you have done your research and know what you are talking about.this project of yours is really life saving and taking care of your people.keep up with caring.what I would like you to do is support your idea with passion and a great team as well as productive stakeholders and I assure you,you will prosper

August 5, 2017 16:28

It is good that you solve a problem through this idea. But this is not a business. You are talking about these things in a general way and sometimes if you are not specific, you can go easily wrong. You can say you will offer services as helping people to get rid of the flood or something else, but it has to be something specific. How is your business sustainable and which steps will you follow in future?

Wow you really got me scared! Saw the length of your reply and was wondering as I asked myself "all these words for me?".

You didn't just answer the questions, you "really answered" them! And I truely wish you well in this project.

I'm most especially glad it made you thought ahead and opened you up to other workable opportunities, well that's what I'm after.

My motto in life is #WeAllNeedMotivation and I believe you are motivated to do more. Just like me.

Keep up the spirit.

Dear Shuhra

Thank you for your encouraging words. I really appreciate your time.

To answer your question; This initiative can be extended to all areas suffering from flood because It is heartbreaking to see the flood water drying up without being utilizing for anything useful. I still believe that this water can be used for many things and I will keep on exploring ways of using this water in a best way possible.

Thank you

June 26, 2017 18:39

Dear Mr Seth

Thank you very much for the word of encouragement and I highly appreciate your questions too.

To answer your question, I started thinking of what will remedy the situation of excessive flood and lack of food in rural areas. Then I came up with this idea of storing rain and flood water in order to generate food throughout the year because people in rural area only grow pearl millet during the rainy season. Equally, not all the years people are generating enough pearl millet because some years lack rain. But, flood water happens every year because it is influenced by water flowing from our neighboring country Angola into Namibia.

This excessive flood normally occurs every year and most time people are frustrated because it causes damages to properties and causing loss of lives too. Initiative to use this water in valuable ways like use it for crop farming can help the community to produce food because now we are allowing this water to dry up without utilizing it. Normally, in my village for the flood water to dry up it takes two to four months but, I am thinking if we start pumping the water for crop farming, i believe it will subside the water quickly and schools and roads will not close down anymore for longer period of time in comparison to what is currently happening.

I am thinking of starting with 15 tanks because this project is going to be a distributor of vegetables and fruits at a lower price. While per household, they will required few tanks if they are to grow crops only for own consumption, unless they also what to turn it into a business. If these tanks cannot sustain my field during the dry season, I will ask permission from the water cooperation to pump water from a nearby canal for crop farming. Furthermore, tap water is accessed in my village, I can use it when the need arises, but I cannot advise people to start farming with tap water because the country is already facing clear water shortage in some areas.

Your question also make me to think that maybe is high time for the communities to incorporate vegetable farming into their field during rainy season. As current they are only growing Pearl millet, so that when they are going to use flood water for farming during the dry season, I will not require to much water until the crops are ready.

I hope I have answered your question well. Thank you.

June 21, 2017 16:41

Hello ,

Your idea is really great...N it will improve the public health welfare to a greater extent.. But would you mind explaining me that these services will only be available to a particular area or are you also planning to spread them.

Shuhra

June 21, 2017 00:46

Hi Karolina,

Your idea depicts an awesome foresight and good initiative to solve a more or less national issue. I like the enthusiasm with which you wrote this and I see you making people smile in a very short while.

I just need some clarifications that I believe will help you too.

Apart from solving the farming issues, do you think your idea can also help reduce the overall effect of flood in your community in terms of covering roads, shutting down schools etc?

And talking about sustainability, what's the number of tanks you'll be needing to store this water and for how long can the water serve (May to December of every year)?

I hope to hear from you soon...Best regards...
