Water is essential for life, in Peru, according to SUNASS, more than 3 million people do not have this service. The deficit of this resource does not allow people to have a good quality of life, makes them more prone to contracting various diseases and makes them more vulnerable in the current pandemic.
Based on this problem and on the contest organized jointly with the company Beat, “Making Lima Challenge”, it is proposed to carry out a fog catcher project to obtain drinking water for the population of a human settlement in the district of Villa María del Triunfo in Metropolitan Lima.
