Description: 

These advanced training materials have been produced to foster the capacity of practitioners from private, nongovernmental and public sectors on one hand, and academics and scientists on the other, to practically implement cost-efficient RWHI technologies and practices in arid and semi-arid areas. Therefore, these training materials intend to provide the required information to support proper planning, design and construction of cost-efficient RWHI technologies and practices, with special emphasis on the specific problems encountered in Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. Further, this manual also suggests relevant technical manuals which specifically focus on each of the RWHI technologies and practices. It is strongly recommended that reference is also made on this additional materials with help from experienced professionals in this field of knowledge. The training materials are divided in 10 chapters which specifically address all relevant technologies and practices that can be used to collect, store and reuse rainwater for off-season small-scale irrigation. Therefore, other uses of rainwater to enhance rainfed agriculture, especially rainwater for supplemental irrigation, or among others, in-situ and micro-catchment RWH systems that are not specifically meant to be used for off-season small-scale irrigation, are not considered.
