Cloud Catchers In Peru

There’s a simple hack to get water in places where supply is scarce – and that’s through catching fog. We find out if this could be a possible solution to the global water crisis.

What can you do if you do not have access to running water? No pipes, no wells, no rainfall? The solution may be to catch water from fog. We meet Abel Cruz, the Peruvian man behind a huge fog net project which is providing water to a community in the slums of Lima. Could fog catching be a solution to wider water crises facing the world?

Also, we help a Canadian listener with his bed bug invasion and hear a big idea that could change how girls and women are viewed in the Arab world.
