A Professor at the University of Guelph believes that eSAKs are the answer when Natural Disasters Strike. Manish Raizada believes that when disaster strikes, rural communities need just as much aid as those living in populated areas. eSAKs are emergency sustainable agriculture kits. That would be assembled with low cost tools, seeds and other items to help devastated farm families recovering from disasters. The kits would contain plastic for shelter and groundcover, grain storage bags, a foldable shovel along with gardening gloves and a first aid kit. As for food, Seeds for Rapidly maturing grains, legumes and vegetables would be added along with fertilizers and farming tools. The entire kit might cost about $40, although he says farmers may opt for a package with fewer low-cost components depending on their circumstances.
