Three-wheeled utility vehicles, biogas and soap: new ideas to improve coexistence
January 7, 2019
An international ideas competition has sought – and found – solutions to improve business between refugees and host communities.
The first winner is the ‘AgRover’, a rugged three-wheeled utility vehicle capable of negotiating rough, muddy terrain and transporting heavy equipment or other payloads to the fields. Refugees and the local population can work together to manufacture and market the AgRover. They can also earn extra income by offering the AgRover as a kind of taxi for agricultural services. All the materials needed to manufacture the vehicle are available locally in southern Africa. The AgRover is already being produced and sold in Guinea, Kenya, Nigeria and Uganda.
