Rainwater Harvesting International Symposium

Invitation to register:

We are proud to inform you that in collaboration with SEARNET and AFRHINET, we will organise an international symposium on:

‘Unlocking the potential of rainwater with adaptive strategies and impacts for upscaling the technology’

 1-12 June 2015 – Addis Ababa, Ethiopia


In this symposium rainwater harvesting (RWH) will be assessed from three angles: Policy, Know-how and Training. The Policy angle will engage stakeholders from governments and INGOs and discuss how to incorporate RWH in policy frameworks, projects and programmes. The Know-how angle will gather academics and practitioners in writing about their projects and research. Finally, a practical training will take place most probably in the Dire Dawa area, which will focus on practicalities and discussions on various RWH/3R technologies.

High Level Policy Discussions: 1st – 2nd June 2015
Write-shop: 3rd – 5th June 2015
Practical Training: 8th – 12th June 2015

Addis Ababa & Dire Dawa, Ethiopia
