Kadagaya is a community focusing on the implementation of a resource-based economy (RBE). Our first pilot project is based in Junin, Peru, where we are constructing an experimental village to evaluate the concepts of RBE. We are aiming to achieve self-sufficiency, reduce human labour and increase quality of life through the development of advanced (mostly open-source) technologies and increasing the consciousness of the community. The supporting systems (e.g. energy, water, agriculture, health, and education) are being holistically designed to increase efficiency and reliability while promoting the consciousness of the interdependency of all systems. Accessibility of knowledge is fundamental to the development of an RBE society and hence all developments from Kadagaya will be freely available to anyone who is interested.
