As a part of my work inquiry, I have started to map out strategies and various ways design could be used to create a sensitive and sustainable local impact. Here, I have mapped out the possible ways of intervening in the idea of ‘development’ connected to shifting from cultural methods of organic farming to higher yielding artificial manure.
This system was mapped out keeping in mind remote areas where cultural methods are still practiced or were practiced until very recently, as the soil there is still naturally richer than in regions where chemical products have been used for many years.
The strategy has been designed keeping in mind a local synthesis with waste being produced in nearby towns and cities. A possible collaboration and circular cycle could be used in both reducing waste and increasing the monetary and social value of the yield.
Like any other designed product, a systematic change can be envisioned only if it takes into consideration the people it is built for and the possibility of various levels of interests. This too is a project envisioned with various routes leading to the same outcome. Some are more idealistic than others, and of course if it were to be executed the project is more likely to take a form which is a combination of these possibilities.
Weighing in on the interest and advantage created for various stake holders, a strategic design, such as this, looks at various on ground scenarios and the charts ways one could create a circular economic system to envision long term endemic change.
