Reinventing Food Aid: The Floating Chinampas Story

Flooding makes up 40% of all natural disasters. Floods are also the second greatest culprit for agricultural production loss, responsible for a total of $21 billion of crop and livestock production loss accrued between 2008 - 2018. How might we then ensure food security in flooded areas? Through Design Thinking, Circularity & Biomimicry, GUILD combines ancient techniques & modern tech to invent their Floating Chinampas.
