A woman has invented tent for refugees which can collect rainwater and store solar energy.

This collapsible tent can collect rainwater, store solar energy could just change the lives of millions of refugees around the world.

The tent, which was inspired by materials found in nature and traditional cultural activities such as weaving, has a double-layer surface to keep out wet and cold weather while allowing cool air in during summer.

The top of the tent collects rainwater which is then filtered down the sides, but the water can be drawn back up through a process called thermosiphoning if the inhabitant wants to shower.
