We invited more than 20 students and young researchers from different disciplines to Kathmandu, Nepal and took a deep dive into the methods and concepts of transdisciplinary research. Here, participants share their experinces.
The pico-hydro turbine prototype was originally deployed in 45 Sri Lankan villages and over 85% of these are still functional. The turbine casing is made of concrete, while the runner is constructed from aluminum.
A workshop with members of the Hydro Empowerment Network, conducted by Green Empowerment started recently. This workshop includes on-site training in turbine design and manufacture, assembly and installation. One of the participants is keeping track of the daily progress in a blog that you can access here: Blog from the Sri Lanka workshop.
