Discuss and research rain water harvesting technologies
The Iganga District is located in eastern Uganda, just north of the equator at latitudes 1o 00' S-1o 06' N and longitudes 33o 57' E-33o 12' E. Mean annual rainfall is approximately 1 250 mm occurring on 100-130 days per annum and is mainly associated with the equatorial troughs in April-May and September-November.
The rapidly growing rural population has expanded the frontiers of agriculture into natural forest and wetland ecosystems. The District now experiences more frequent local droughts, faster drying up of water springs during the dry season
Women are responsible for sourcing water and they suffer greatly. We need to discuss and research water tanks, rain water harvesting etc:
