EnterpriseWorks/VITA (EWV), is seeking design ideas for a low-cost rain water storage system that can be installed in households in developing countries. The solution is expected to facilitate access to clean water at a household level, addressing a problem that affects millions of people worldwide who are living in impoverished communities or rural areas where access to clean water is limited. Domestic rain water harvesting is a proven technology that can be a valuable option for accessing and storing water year round. However, the high cost of available rain water storage systems makes them well beyond the reach of low-income families to install in their homes.
A solution to this problem would not only provide convenient and affordable access to scarce water resources, but would also allow families, particularly the women and children that are usually tasked with water collection, to spend less time walking distances to collect water and more time on activities that can bring in income and improve the quality of life.

In the Arctic, the presence of sea ice can eliminate the possibility of deploying boom as a tactic for cleaning oil. We need a novel design for a boom system for collecting oil in a broken ice environment.
