Fog Collection: Pulling Water From Thin Air

Traveling long distances for fresh water is common in the developing world; now imagine throwing some mountains into the scenario. In places like Nepal, that’s the reality. Fortunately, that reality comes with ample fog… and even the world’s poorest people can harvest that fog with simple technology. The video above gives a great overview of fog collection.

I’m relatively new to this concept, so if you’ve got experience with fog collection, or providing such technology to people in developing nations, do share – I’d love to hear your stories.
