How can Africa create an Agribusiness Revolution with it's youth?
I'm sure there are indigenous techniques for collecting water. Try to use that also. Some places try to catch dew from the morning clouds on nets in mountainous areas. Others dig wells. Some build catchment areas to collect seasonal rain. Start with a small field and end up with a largest farm in Africa. When you get there invite me over to see it. Good luck.

What do you think is the biggest issue in Asia and how to deal with it?
There is a bias for having bigger families, but I noticed it is tied to the more people in a family allows the collective to survive. I guess it's all tied to money. With it, you don't need the big families to make it through life. With money you can also educate everyone for free. If people had to pay for an education, only the rich would have it. Some say money is the root of evil, but not having it is truly the root of despair.

What do you think is the biggest issue in Asia and how to deal with it?
Hi Anh Nguyen, I would have to say the biggest issue in Asia is overpopulation. Overpopulation puts a big burden on natural resources in the region. This creates pollution and poverty problems in the same cities. The over population creates a class of people that have to work for so little while others prosper from their situations. It will take generations for people to move out of their class. Generations of poor create a feeling of despair and leads to illegal ways to get more money. Every country goes through these cycles, but it is always harder to break out of these cycles when there are more people than jobs.

How can Africa create an Agribusiness Revolution with it's youth?
Hi Thuthukani Ndlovu, Part of the problem with any agriculture is water. Can we get enough water to farm the land. If we can find a simple way of getting some quantities of desalinated water to the fields, you can grow almost anything. The ocean has a vast amount of water, but the salt makes it useless for farming. Separate the salt from the water and you can have an endless supply of water. The goal isn't to create a lush garden of eden, that would take way too much water. the goal is to allow plants to prosper. Ways of desalinization, would be to create large clear plastic covered pools of saltwater. The sun will evaporate the water and separate the salt. The large clear plastic sheet will collect the evaporated water and you can collect it as it condenses on the plastic. You'll have a salt farm at the same time. Since you're in Zimbabwe you will need to rely on your neighboring countries to farm the water or you can acquire land near the ocean. Once you have the water, focus on growing native plants that provided food in the past. There is a reason why these plants prospered in the past, mainly because they are drought resistant. After the soil becomes more fertile, you can plant other crops. Everyone should have a chance to work hard to grow enough food to feed the people. Hopefully the youth of Zimbabwe can accomplish this. Good luck and I'm cheering for you.

Empowering communities through crowdfunded architecture
This is a great idea, but the funds that trickle in will be a problem. The idea on an Architect Developer is what I also wanted to see, but as you know Architects rarely make enough money to pull this off. A way to accumulate funds to build projects that are beneficial to the community....that's a tough one. Could it be a habitat for humanity on steroids? I was about to write nothing is free and no one works for free, except when you look at Habit for Humanities business plan. The thing is, what you are talking about will need millions of dollars to do and not just a few hundred thousand. Maybe we already have an answer, we just need to extrapolate it. I would love to help collaborate on more ideas.
