A Kenyan entrepreneur has adapted hydroponics, a technique that allows to grow plants without soil, to African climate. The technique that traditionally needs an energy-intensive climate control, now allows to grow plants in simple sheds without the use of electricity. Hydroponics Kenya is one of green enterprises supported by the World Bank / infoDev's Climate Technology Program, an initiative sponsored by the U.K.’s Department for International Development, Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (Australian Aid), Denmark’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (DANIDA), Norway’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Netherlands’ Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
