The Roof Water Harvesting and Management Project in response to the national agenda that calls on government partners to provide relief to the most water stressed parts of the country through implementation of low cost technologies. It is anchored on the realization that the full benefits of RWH can only be realized where the attributes of this high value scarce resource are understood and it is consequently managed with this perspective. The project shall conduct education and sensitisation activities that target effective management of the harvested water resource so typically characterised by seasonal scarcity. Implementation of the project shall be at sub-county level. Rainwater harvesting facilities shall be constructed at institutions (schools, health units, administration centres) and homesteads. It is expected that, with proper management of storage, the system will provide safe water to the households for a longer period beyond the dry spells than has hitherto been the case, and therefore eventually guarantee supply all year round. It will serve as a learning ground for management of rainwater harvesting systems that are existing and those to be built and lessons learnt will be replicated in other areas.
The project aims at, on the one hand, increasing water supply, improving sanitation and protecting the environment at household and institutional levels, and most importantly on the other hand it aims to demonstrate how RWH can be optimally used as means to alleviate the shortage in water supply in water scarce areas – with proper management.
Both households and institutions (schools, health units, administration centres) will benefit from this project. More specifically, the main beneficiaries from the project include: Women and children through saving on time spent to collect water.
