Promote rainwater harvesting for sustainable agriculture, livelihoods

It reduces soil erosion and flood hazards by collecting rainwater and reducing the flow of stormwater to prevent urban flooding. Most buildings that utilize rainwater harvesting systems have a built-in catchment area on top of the roof, which has a capacity of collecting large volumes of water in case of rainstorms

      Promoting rainwater harvesting for sustainable agriculture and livelihoods is crucial for mitigating water scarcity, reducing soil erosion, and preventing urban flooding. It's a practical solution that harnesses nature's resources for long-term sustainability and resilience. I really hope to see it implemented

          Harvesting rain water is very crucial especially in areas that barely receive rain ...the conserved water may be used during the dry season.

              This will be a great initiative as the approach will help communities capture and store rain water, enhancing water security and resilience in the face of climate change impacts.

                @walter_lungayi The sad part is that we still have people who don't have water due to the area's lack of storage facilities.

                        @rukia_ahmed_abdi Absolutely. When done well, we can solve the water issues for now and future. The country's problems in water and agriculture are easily solvable by the people of Kenya in collaboration with the government.
