How will we do this?
There are many knowledgeable people who are working with the poor and who are coming up with great solutions.
5V is building a ‘solution archive’ covering the major areas of concern. Since every geographic area has unique features and needs, we will create area/country pages, which will feature only the appropriate solutions that can be impemented in that area. Urban areas can use different solutions than rural ones, flood regions have different problems than dry areas. People living and working in a particular region can now easily find regionally appropriate, sustainable, low- or no cost field tested solutions.
Look below at some of the ‘solutions’ we are looking at. Yes, I know, those of you who are steeped in this field are probably well aware of these ideas, but I promise you, they are news to many people who are working with the poor. It is also possible that some of these ‘solutions’ don’t work…well, that is why we will have feedback buttons! We can easily switch out pages to make sure we have the best possible solutions presented in the best possible format.
