Still we live because of these kind of people…… Reply Eric Martin says: at The sandy section would be an absolutely perfect place to put solar collectors. The sand is there partly to provide protection from evaporation, so the shade from the collectors might enhance that effect as well as providing power. Reply Bernard Finucane says: at Except it floods in the rainy season. The water pours over the dam. But I agree about the solar panels being protection against sunlight. In that climate you can probably grow crops under the panels. Reply Eric Martin says: at A lot of them are, and the American government hates them.

That’s common across Africa, and is a huge part of the problem in most of the continent. Where are the men? Some do work in farming, but many sit around not doing much. Big problem. Men should be out front on this. Reply B uppy says: at You are blind. There are as many or more men working as there are women. Reply Darubini2 says: at It’s not always as simple a case as that of men just sitting around doing nothing. As indicated by one of the community workers, responsibilities are divvied up and in this case women took the helm and onus. However, in many rural communities there is a dearth of men because most leave for the urban areas to seek employment leaving their wives behind.

Reply premwithme says: at This is check Dam but their is one problem, the down stream flow of water get stopped and you literally killing a river. Check dams by upstream state just killed a river in my state and the river bed dry through the year Reply Madex One says: at Not the same type of dams, this one let’s water overflow and go on to the ocean, it just stores a part of it and releases it slowly Reply Johnny Erinn says: at @Madex One I guess he didn’t watch the video like us. He already had an idea right before watching it Reply O Pierben says: at I read the wikipedia page, said that only 1-3% of the rainwater is retained in a single sand dam the rest continues along its natural route. There are a lot of contentious (non sand) dams here in the states that screw with different groups I just read about the Klamath water dispute, some f-ed up stuff Reply Back to the Old Way says: at @Madex One Not enough water. Premwithme is right. The same happened in Zimbabwe because people didn’t understand the proper water management structures to use. Check dams are fine, if they don’t cut off water access to villages downstream. When they do cut off access, they cause more problems than they solve.
