|fog collection | briquette production|
|I serve on the board of two Canadian charities, the Nepal Community Development Foundation and FogQuest. Part of my daily existence is devoted to these organizations and the projects below.
|Fog collection project in ilam, eastern Nepal|
|My main interest with these projects is trying to advance fog collection systems in Nepal. I shot and edited this brief clip in October of 2010 at a new fog collection installation in eastern Nepal. I built and installed the test collector for this project in 2008.
This video, along with more information about fog collection, is featured on the FogQuest web site.
|Sanu Shresta describes the briquette making process|
|I recently put this brief clip together of the process of making briquettes, featuring the pioneer of this technology, Sanu Shresta at FOST. Sanu is my project partner in building fog collectors. This briquette process is now being introduced into eastern Nepal.
I shot this video back in 2008 and since then our relationship has grown. He was one the finalists in the 2007 BCC World Challenge Awards, and keeps this small operation in Nepal going, primarily through through deep dedication and enduring belief in the value of small scale, sustainable solutions to infrastructure problems in the developing world.
Please feel free to contact me anytime if you have any questions about these projects, or are interested in finding out more about the organizations behind them.
