Water efficiency, productivity and sustainability in the NENA regions (WEPS-NENA)

Rainwater harvesting webinar series - Module 2

RWH Processes

About Module 2:

This module will examine the use of RWH practices and modelling for determining the land and soil suitability of surface runoff harvesting and understanding the nature and dynamics of water balance at a landscape level. It will also explore how local RWH interventions can impact soil and water processes and transform landscapes.

Expected outcomes for the participants:

Participants will achieve the following outcomes:

1. Identify the main physical and biological processes and factors involved in rainwater harvesting and storage;

2. Understand the nature and dynamics of water balance of a landscape;

3. Comprehend the impacts of local RWH interventions at catchment level, in terms of hydrology, nutrient and sediment transport, crop yield or land management.
