Clean drinking water using solar-powered systems
Russia’s war of aggression has led to the destruction of large parts of Ukraine’s infrastructure. The central water supply network and electricity grid, for example, have been severely damaged – with serious consequences for the population. With support from DEG Impulse gGmbH, the Berlin-based company Boreal Light is supplying five decentralised, off-grid water desalination systems and 10 UV disinfection systems and is providing system operation and maintenance training for 25 local employees. This will give around 200,000 people access to an environmentally friendly and cost-effective supply of clean drinking water.
Mine clearance to improve food security
In Ukraine, many areas of land that could be used for agriculture have been mined during Russia’s ongoing war of aggression and therefore cannot be farmed, or only at great risk to life and limb. Limited agricultural production also has a negative impact on food security – both locally and globally. As part of a project implemented by Ukrainian agricultural enterprise NIBULON Ltd., with support from DEG Impulse gGmbH, affected areas are being cleared of mines, thus improving the safety of the local population, reviving the economy in rural communities and increasing annual grain harvests and exports, for example to African countries.
