The Water and Food Award is pleased to announce that in cooperation with our IT sponsor, TATA we are creating a database and exchange for requests for assistance. The Award aims to bring the power of social networking to helping water and food award projects around the world by bringing experts such as universities and NGOs, together with sponsors and projects together directly.
Applicants simply post their requests into the database, which can then be reviewed by our other stakeholders.
The database even offers each applicant a free service to update progress of their project. The award will use this information in its newsletter to keep everyone updated of progress.
Our hope is that a water and food project somewhere in the world, one of our applicants, needs advice on something like improving productivity, pest control, or commercialization. Our sponsors and other stakeholder review the project’s request, and are able to respond to help out without delay.
We envision our stakeholders being able to assist with products, knowledge, experts, and even financial assistance.
