Smart Water Harvesting System For Agriculture

Water issue adressed: Too little

According to New Straits Times, about 100 farmers in Pinang Tunggal, Paya Keladi and Pantai Kamloon in Penang, are at risk of suffering major losses when there is inadequate water supply to irrigate paddy fields. My innovative plan is to harvest rain and runoff water by the usage of hi-tech solutions such as IoT to supply water in the underground storage automatically during drought. This idea does not only put an end to drought issues faced by the farmers but also increases the yield of food in my beloved country. It achieves 3 UN SDGs which are Goal2-Zero hunger, Goal13-Climate Action and Goal15-Life on land. I believe that my project will certainly create a better and greener future globally.
