Global Exchange of Design Concepts

Senior staff from our in-country, NGO partner in Colombia (APROTEC) went to receive training and exchange design concepts on ram pumps with AIDFI (in-country, NGO partner in the Philippines). At the same time, AIDFI learned about APROTEC's work on low-head/high flow river turbines, and more.

Our partner in the Philippines, AIDFI, was named recently as one of the recipients of this year's Ramon Magsaysay Award, Asia's equivalent of the Nobel Prize! Among AIDFI's technical expertise is the hydraulic ram pump which won the BBC World Challenge in 2010.

APROTEC is
an active member of the "Network of Biodigesters for Latin America and the Caribbean" (RedBioLAC), also promoting biogas in Columbia as another source of renewable energy.

Connecting our partners and networks creates opportunity to replicate innovative projects on a regional and global scale.
