Rooftop Rainwater Harvesting in High Density Areas

Project Summary: 

The targeted Districts are recurrently threatened by flooding. Rainwater harvesting (RWH) is identified among other mitigating measures.

Four types of interventions are proposed in this project according to category of beneficiaries:

1. Strengthening the existing loan scheme on RWH facilities;

2. Supporting a subsidy & loan system basing on Ubudehe categorization;

3. Disseminating very low cost (artisan) RWH techniques for rural poor households;

Constructing RWH systems for selected public buildings and integrated collective household systems.
