Through learning and listening to a variety of people (see our previous blog), it was evident that the problem was far greater than anticipated. With deforestation, over grazing and forest fires being the main sources of the problem, it was hard not address these issues in the solution. The original brief was to ‘design and implement a device which would protect a variety of crops from wildlife ensuring it is non-harmful, active 24/7 and works with wildlife rather than against it’. However this was later changed not only to include a device but a solution which would also target the source of the problem. With this in mind and the help from the community and RUCHI, a local solution was developed which would be low cost, sustainable and long-lasting.
