Solutions for providing food in Sudan

From donkey ploughs and agricultural tools to dams and terraces to collect scarce rainwater, an overview of Practical Action's food security project work in Sudan.

The sustainable fridge

In the heat of Sudan, food doesn't stay fresh for long. One ingenious solution is the zeer pot: a simple fridge made of local materials. It consists of one earthenware pot set inside another, with a layer of wet sand in between. As the moisture evaporates, it cools the inner pot, keeping produce fresh for up to three weeks.

Connecting villages: gravity ropeways

Since 2001, Practical Action is promoting gravity ropeway as a complementary means of transport systems in rural Nepal by modifying and advancing it for increased safety and technical efficiency.
