We are students, currently in third year of BTech in Civil Engineering program from NMIMSs MPSTME, Mumbai. Our involvement in creating resilient infrastructure is thus an essential part in creating a safe and sustainable environment for future generations and hence weve come up with this innovation, named The Aqua Barrier.
This Water Barrier is one of its kind disaster resilient structure that will prevent destruction due to all the disasters caused by water. It is economical, disruptive and very feasible, looking at the larger picture of the impacts due to destruction by floods, tsunamis, cyclones etc.
Youth represent an important and dynamic segment of the population in every country. The agility, creativity and persistence that is characteristic of the youth, make them the most promising changemakers of the future. The CDRI understands that youth engagement is crucial to mobilizing change for positive social development.
