About this book

This publication highlights the link between rain-water harvesting, ecosystems and human well-being and draws the attention of readers to both the negative and positive aspects of using this technology and how the negative benefits can be minimized and positive capitalized.

In this report, the concept of rain-water harvesting is examined for its potential to increase human well-being with eroding the ecosystems functions that water serves in the local landscape. Examples from diverse geographical and societal settings are examined, to demonstrate the benefits and constraints of rain-water harvesting technologies in addressing multiple demands for freshwater in specific locations.
