We’ve kept busy this week here in Banjul, The Gambia meeting with reporters, farmers and the Ministry of Agriculture.
Check out our article published in The Point newspaper. In this week’s innovation we learned how a village in South Africa is pulling water out of thin air – harvesting it from fog in a mountain pass! We interviewed David Kaimowitz, director of Sustainable Development at the Ford Foundation to learn about their new multi-million dollar initiative to address climate change by empowering indigenous peoples. We also spoke with Steve Osofsky, Director of Wildlife Health Policy for the Wildlife Conservation Society on how his field work and policy work combine to address the tensions between farmers and the wildlife around them.
