Using ingenuity to overcome its serious water challenges, Israel has become the go-to expert for a world facing an impending water crisis. This year’s WATEC expo and conference, to be held in September in Tel Aviv, is expected to attract 10,000 stakeholders from 90 countries seeking Israeli solutions for water issues.
Even before the earthquake hit last April, destroying 700,000 homes in the hill country of Central Nepal, these villages were in crisis. For a complex of reasons, these villagers – like villagers all over the “two-thirds world” in Asia, Africa and South America – are mostly unable to feed their families with what they have been able to produce on their small plots of land.
Ever since a catastrophic earthquake hit Nepal in April 2015, the entire Tamang family has been living in a “cottage.” A local engineer determined that their original house, built 60 years ago Manegau village 15 miles east of Kathmandu, was in danger of collapse if another earthquake hit.
