Millennium Fellowship Project: Drivers of Change's International Project
This project has as a goal to reduce the amount of food that is lost in farms in Costa Rica. We were primarily focusing on tomato loss. We have been working on a diagnosis and had several ideas focused on reducing the loss and mainly on the concern of the overproduction of tomato. We wanted to either develop a technique or find a solution that could reach at least 100 farmers and help reduce this loss of food.
