Roof catchment rainwater harvesting and management

Tuesday, May 1, 2007
Project Status: 

May 2007 - The Network for Water and Sanitation, Uganda (NETWAS-U) received a €450,000 grant to conduct education, sensitization activities to promote roof rainwater harvesting (RWH) to provide relief to the most water stressed parts of the country through the implementation of this low cost solution. The system will provide safe water to the households for a period that will extend beyond the dry spells with aim to secure water supply all year round. The project should also help demonstrate how RWH can be optimally used as means to alleviate the shortage in water supply in water scarce areas – with proper management.
