54865368c50cbprofilephotos02 - climate adaptation.

How could 30 scavenger families in one dumpsite create 15,000 jobs?  A livelihood to 150 school communities?  Generate 105 million pesos potential income to small holder farmers in 3-5 years?  And, 525 million projected income on the 5th - 7th year and in succeeding years thereafter?

I am respectfully sharing a concept idea on openideo in response to their challenge in 2015: "How might urban slum communities become more resilient to the effects of climate change?".   We have been searching high and low on how we could pilot this, and this is our latest attempt.

We hope WeAdapt community could help us find directions and together make it happen.

Thank you.
