Water access remains a key is issue of human development in much of the world. Innovations are needed to promote water access via non-traditional means.
The Pukio system can generate up to 1000 litres of clean water per day by condensing water vapor from the air
The system is complimentary to natural water sources and conventional irrigation, and boosts productivity with smart farming via technical integration.
Not clear if the product has been tested in a variety of climate/weather conditions, and how useful it would be across different environments.
Many communities lack access to potable water resources and do not live within reach of conventional water access solutions. Decentralization of water acces can allow for communities to acces to sustainable, non-commercial supplies of water whilst also lowering waste and transportation costs
