Vote film 1:
Impact of fertilizer trees on farmers' soils in the Cassou commune of Burkina Faso - Dutch Water Authorities ()
Kevin Dipama project manager – Burkina Faso: 'I would like to use the money for reforestation. We want to plant more fertilizer trees. After the first reforestation, we will look in the community to see where we can contribute with other projects and plant fertilizer trees around creating greener fields.'
Vote film 3:
Smelling the flowers: Constructed Wetlands for Wastewater in Ethiopia - Dutch Water Authorities ()
Tanah Meijers, project manager – Ethiopia: 'I would like to spend the money on scaling up the flowery wetlands. We can use this money to develop a program that will allow us to create more awareness and share knowledge about the creation of these nice smelling wetlands. We also want stakeholders to take up the building themselves. This would be a great contribution to such a wastewater program.'
The winner will be announced during the DWA networking day on November 27th. More information and the other films can be found here: NWB Video Award - Dutch Water Authorities ()
