March 11, 2016


Hugh Magee presented the project at MIT water Night 2016. The project received honorable mention in "Teaching in Water, Management, and Human Development" category

This project embodies ideas of disaster preparedness with community activity by embedding smarter systems into the existing Pati's of Kathmandu Valley. This approach will help to them function well on a day-to-day basis and create a Social Hub in the heart of small communities. In a disaster situation its ability to store and treat water, house supplies and communication infrastructure as well as generate energy via PV technology allows this shared public infrastructure to become a lifeline for its community. 

This project is supported by TATA Center for Technology and Design.
