Rainwater Harvesting

Uganda as a country has high potential for rainwater harvesting due to the fact that it receives high precipitation and some parts receive two rainfall seasons a year. Despite this clearly vivid potential, rainwater harvesting is not practiced to its full potential. In Some households, fairly small containers such as plastic drums, pots and jerrycans which cannot be comparable to the amount of rainwater falling are used. Other case scenarios where rainwater is harvested at a relatively large scale, functionality seems to be a big issue which at times leads to the systems being abandoned after shortly after installation. https://docs.google.com/folder/d/0B5rfF59ifxGLSERsWUJiMlpGNlE/edit
