Abstract: "This workshop presented us with a very hopeful message about the possibilities to use rainwater much more efficiently to benefit household needs, farming but also to avoid problems like flooding. People in India have harvested rain-water for centuries. But in recent time the authorities and water experts have diverted attention from rain-water harvesting to ground-water and surface-water. Hence traditional and often efficient harvesting represents an important potential, also for farming. An international network, bringing together all those involved in water-harvesting is strongly recommended in order to facilitate sharing of best practice and to transfer knowledge to regions where rain-water harvesting is still not part of the culture."
