It employs empirical design from a participatory scenario planning and systems thinking.
The Kere is a catastrophic phenomenon that has been affecting the Deep South (the Grand South) since 1929.

These include, but are not limited to: desertification, El Nino effects, drought, poor governance, inaccessibility, poverty and insecurity.
