FogNet Alliance - Learning Sessions 2021

Water is one of the most important resources for life

The FogNet Alliance – a global partnership and practical network of researchers, water experts, international organisations, and representatives from politics and industry – has set itself the goal of sharing knowledge and experience on how to obtain drinking water from fog.

Some successful fog net projects have been implemented around the world. Now it is important to  expand this knowledge and also to set the initial spark for further fog net projects. Therefore, we want to support an exchange between organisations and practitioners (NGOs), donors, representatives of fog net projects and the advisory group of the FogNet Alliance and other scientists.
