Concept

 

           

Water harvesting, storage and processing technologies are key water-related interventions with the potential to contribute to rapid improvements in provision of water for domestic use, livestock, manufacturing and agriculture among other uses. Secure access to water with reliable storage has boosted economic growth in many countries worldwide. In many cases, water storage simultaneously serves multiple purposes, such as irrigation, energy generation and flood control.

By integrating Water harvesting, storage and processing structures in water landscape in a planned and systematic manner, it is possible to create a “water buffer” that helps reduce vulnerability to outages, drought and seasonal variations in rainfall and in effect achieve a water secure society. It is imperative to harvest and store water when it is plentiful and make it available when it is scarce.

According to the United Nations, 3.6 billion people lack safely managed sanitation services, compounding the effects on people’s health. The impact on child mortality rates is devastating with more than 297,000 children under five who die annually from diarrhoeal diseases due to poor sanitation.
