“It is important to realise that what goes on up in the highlands of Ethiopia have a knock on effect downstream on farming land,” says Henri. “We want to develop technology for farmers who come from poor farming back grounds to help them produce nutrients which get lost in the stream to help them produce crops for their local communities.”
