A smart village that responds to the environment and adapts to it.

Ganvie is a lake village in Benin, Africa, lying in Lake Nokoué. One of the problems of Ganvie Lake Village is the high water level. The best answer is "water for water".

This structure works with clean energies including (Tidal energy, Photovoltaic system and Aquaponic system).

One of the major future crises of the world is rising sea levels, which could pose a serious threat to human survival. This danger further affects coastal towns and villages close to the water...
