    University of Delaware
    Newark, DE 19716


    Farah Nibbs is currently a Ph.D. student at the University of Delaware majoring in Disaster Science and Management. Nibbs recently graduated from the  SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry.  Her graduate project focused on creating a sustainable and affordable rainwater harvesting system for small island developing states (SIDS) and remote rural communities using Ferrocement and Biosand filters. This project hoped to offer an alternative path for climate change adaptation and resilience and water security in these communities.  In November 2017, Nibbs built her first prototype of the tank in Grenada. For her work on this, she was featured on Going Green which is a Spectrum news programme on sustainability. The link to this news clip can be found here: .
