Explain your project in details:
Our project presents a reservoir designed to support a seedling through its critical first year. By providing water and shelter while stimulating the seedling to produce a healthy and deep root structure, tapping into the sub-surface water supply within its first year. This way, reservoir produces independent, strong trees which are not reliant on external irrigation and can survive harsh conditions. The reservoir is clay-based that is 100% biodegradable and thermal insulation that prevents water from evaporating. The reservoir will only be filled once during planting (first 6 months). As the reservoir degrades and empties over time, it becomes an organic soil-improving substrate; And in order to accelerate their growth and have a better yield; We present in addition to the reservoir, fungi which surround the roots of the plant and live in symbiosis with it while increasing the surface of absorption of the roots of 100 to 1000 times which improves the access to the moisture of the soil as well as nutrients and minerals.
Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development
It is to mention that the concept of sustainability includes three overarching and interacting elements: social, environmental and economic; and our project meets these 3 criteria. From a socioeconomic point of view, our project will help improving the level and living conditions of our two target populations while increasing their income and their level of well-being by contributing in the creation of jobs. On the environmental level and with our water-saving reservoir we will contribute in the conservation of water and put forward environmentally friendly practices and economical ones in the consumption of resources.
Sustainability and future plans
We are becoming aware of the challenges to sustain and improve the quality of lives in a world witnessing an increasing water demand and resources depletion. As the use of water, food and soil resources are interlinked, interconnected solutions must be developed. Restoring nature by planting trees is the most water efficient way of addressing this challenge and has a positive impact on the long-term.
