Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) has been advocating for rainwater harvesting and the role that people and communities can play in contributing to solving the alarming water situation that we face today. Recognizing the significance of rainwater harvesting, the Ministry of Urban Development and Poverty Alleviation issued a notification on 28 July 2001 for the provision of rainwater harvesting systems on plots of all newly planned buildings measuring 100 sq m and above. To achieve the goals of Jal Shakti Abhiyan, a water conservation campaign was launched on 1 July 2019, and the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) issued guidelines for urban water conservation through rainwater harvesting. In addition, Ministry of Environment and Forests as well as other states / municipal bodies are also promoting rainwater harvesting in existing and upcoming built-up areas. In urban area, rainwater can be collected from rooftop of flats, indoor open spaces, playground and parks, paved / unpaved areas, parking for storage as well as recharging the groundwater.
School of Water and Waste has developed this training – a mix of theory and practice aimed to help build a community of practice in individual households, Resident Welfare Association (RWA)and consultants (architects / engineers/ planners) to strengthen basics as well as step by step guide to design and implement rainwater harvesting systems at an individual and neighbourhood scale. The training will also provide guidance on how to engage with relevant stakeholder aimed at building water prudent sustainable communities.
