Human activities produce waste, and it’s the means these wastes are handled, stored, collected, and disposed of, which if not taken care of properly might create risks to the setting and to public health. In urban areas, particularly within the speedy urbanizing cities of the developing world, issues and problems with Solid Waste Management (SWM)
In the middle of the work. You might have entered a scenario where you spilled a glass of water on the floor. As usual, we would’ve got the lecture and scolding from our parents. To some, this event remains a nostalgia, and to others, it still happens. But the guilt after spilling never changed. Particularly
Solid waste management (SWM) has risen to be one of the biggest developmental challenges in India. Several research studies point out that the practices of careless disposal of unsafe waste produce harmful gases, because of microbial decomposition, climate conditions, refuse characteristics, and land-filling operations. The growing population has emerged to become a gigantic production of
Gaia serves a divine meaning of mother earth originated from ancient Greek. In our solar system Earth is the only planet that can support life. Only earth has an atmosphere that can produce oxygen and purify the air by its greenery. All the living beings on earth are created using the materials available on the
The key factors responsible for the dwindling water supply are stated as water scarcity, urbanization, and climate change. Most of the towns are dependent on springs that are fed by local aquifers, which are natural underground systems and form the primary means of water supply. Usually, the monsoons replenish the groundwater, but with concrete everywhere,
One of the major challenges faced by humanity is water scarcity. According to United Nations estimates, more than half the global population will live in water-stressed or water-scarce countries by 2025 with majority of them being in India and China. As the countries struggle with their resources, they are facing water constraints. Of the rivers
The Indo-Gangetic plains in Uttar Pradesh, a state in north India have immensely fertile lands. Despite 80% of the croplands located in the region, irrigation is not assured throughout the year and dependence on rainfall results in frequent moisture deficits.
During our Summer internship of the 2021 program with the help of our Market Research interns, Gaia Bharat was able to conduct a survey which was based on interviewing about 100+ farmers from various locations of the state of Uttar Pradesh. This data was collected by directly meeting, cold callings to the farmers. And not
Since from our very first approach of designing a prototype to just store the water. We did thorough interviews with farmers and understood that farmers not only have no place to store the rainwater but are in urgent requirement of a product to save their crops from excessive water and hefty rainfall.The idea of this
Water conservation and storage is an important key element of any strategy that aims to alleviate the water scarcity crisis in India. With rainfall patterns changing and getting influenced almost every year, the Indian government and organizations have started looking at means to revive, store and conserve the traditional systems of water harvesting in the country.
