The Indigenous System of Rain Water Harvesting and Conservation : A case study of Esanland, Edo State Nigeria.
The Indigenous System of Rain Water Harvesting and Conservation : A case study of Esanland, Edo State Nigeria.
The project will enhance and promote the traditional system of rain water harvesting by integrating modern techniques of rainwater harvesting and applying it in Esan community. The project will involve community mobilization, consultation and advocacy visits, focused group discussion, installation of plastic storage tank for rain water collection, training workshops on rain water harvesting and preservation and publication of case study.

Esanland is situated on a plateau and have continued to suffer water scarcity. The traditional indigenous techniques of rain water harvesting have become inadequate due to population growth and erratic rainfall pattern as a result of Climate change. Many storage facilities for storing rain water have become obsolete and are not conducive for rain water harvesting and this has reduced the volume of rain water collection by almost 50%, there have also been an increase in water borne diseases in the community.
