Irregular weather has made rainfall become unpredictable and groundwater availability is reducing. There is an absence of financing tools to adopt innovations. Issues of urgency include: groundwater is used extensively for flood irrigation and there is declining soil fertility due to excessive application of chemical fertilizers. There is also a growing demand for exotic vegetation by hospitality industry.
Recycling of blackwater (wastewater containing feces, urine) and greywater (streams without fecal contamination) from households for production of market-quality compost for cultivation of exotic vegetables. The innovation enables women agri-entrepreneurs to have better quality of crops with compost application and extended crop season.
