Fog-catching nets offer hope for parched villages.
Parched communities around the world are turning to fog-catching nets to harvest hundreds of gallons of water a day.

A single 13ft long by 33ft high net alone can collect 66 gallons of water a day, sufficient for a family's needs. The water, which is pure and does not need to be filtered, runs down into troughs and then via pipes into a holding tank.
