Building with Nature Documentary

Indonesian coasts suffer from erosion, caused by sea level rise, mangrove conversion for aquaculture and groundwater extraction. In some places kilometres of land are lost and this will exacerbate with climate change. Hard structures like sea walls are ineffective in mud-coasts, expensive and unable to adapt to climate change. Furthermore, they fail to provide the economic, environmental and social services that healthy ecosystems offer. We combine ecosystem based solutions like mangrove restoration with engineering, called ´Building with Nature´. With this multi-stakeholder approach we build safe coastlines that adapt to sea level rise and simultaneously introduce sustainable land uses for prosperity. We aim to mainstream the Building with Nature approach in coastal management across Indonesia for climate change adaptation and to catalyse change through a large scale implementation in Central Java.

Filtros Verdes para agua limpia, saneamiento ambiental y permacultura familiar

Como parte del programa de la Alianza por la Resiliencia en Guatemala, entregamos a comunidades con escasez de fuentes de agua, 15 sistemas de tratamiento de aguas grises domiciliarias, denominados Filtro de Raíces y Tierra o Filtros Verdes. Estos 15 filtros reutilizan y optimizan unos 90,000 litros de agua mensuales en beneficio de las familias y la comunidad, a través de un sistema que incluye la plantación de especies herbáceas nativas con raíces filtradoras. No sólo devuelven la calidad del agua, si no también lo optimizan para la producción de alimentos de las familias mediante huertos familiares y permacultura en condiciones áridas, y contribuyen con el saneamiento ambiental.
