There is no natural reason why any single village in any single part of the world should remain short of drinking water'. So much becomes clear from browsing and reading through The Rainwater harvesting CD, from which this quote is taken. And it is not just referring to good intentions but also to physical realities. Imagine, a rain shower of 100 mm, the kind you even get in most deserts annually, yields when collected from a surface of 1 hectare no less than 1 million litres of water! The CD so you will need a computer with a CD-ROM drive offers a lot of background documents and case studies on rainwater harvesting, including the CTA study visit in Kenya in 2000 (see Spore 89). The documents section contains selected articles from the magazine Waterlines and the proceedings of the 1999 and 2001 rainwater harvesting conferences.
