Best Climate Practices Contest

45 ideas are in the running for this year’s International Center for Climate Governance Best Climate Practices Contest.

The Best Climate Practices Contest of 2015 aims to showcase innovative solutions to improve efficient water management and water-smart food production, and to help the winner/s in scaling up existing projects or implementing ground-breaking ideas.

Ideas range from an innovative way to measure rainfall (smartRAIN) to a seawater greenhouse making use of abundant resources (seawater/sun) to grow crops.

An entry based on research conducted by Stefania Girardi in the School of Geography at the University of Leeds is featured amongst those short-listed.  SUDs for FOOD is all about developing a framework to help city planners and residents identify sustainable water sources to help promote food growing in urban areas. If you like the entry then you are encouraged to vote for this via the following link:
