Sustainable Rain-Water Harvesting Strategies: Lessons and Opportunities for Developing Societies Africa
AbstractThe demand and supply of water in both developed and developing societies has wanting however, the challenges on use and need have tended to be similar. This study sought to explore technologies and sustainable techniques for rain-water harvesting as its main aim. Various societies over time have used their indigenous methods, and this study sought to explore through case surveys as its design in both developed and developing societies on methods both indigenous and modern techniques that have been used.

Various lessons have been given for adoption and implementation in sustainable living and learning for developing societies as Kenya.
