Project Details


Description and Impact

aQysta is an innovative startup developing and deploying waterwheel irrigation pumps that do not require any fuel or electricity to operate. We are looking for 2 Experts to come to:

  • An Agriculture Expert to come to Nepal, Indonesia (and possibly Colombia) for 3 months to support them in how to best distribute the water according to the technical capabilities of the pump and the requirements of each crop.
  • An Irrigation Expert to support in how to best distribute the water.

This project will help ensure that the farmers are able to use their new water pumps in a way that sustains them financially, so as to lessen the risks that they incur.

Deliverables

For the irrigation project: Design and document best practice for managing and distributing water pumped by the pump.
