Research in Germany is Creating Sustainable Solutions in Ghana

In the wilds of Ghana, herdsmen shepherd goats, sheep, and cattle and commonly allow their livestock to bathe in the same water source that 22% of Ghana’s population relies on. This leaves the population vulnerable to waterborne disease carried by livestock and imposes an urgent health threat.

The program has developed a sensor technology that measures acidity, temperature, and levels of oxygen in the water source and then inform others whether or not it is safe to drink.
