WAHARA - Water Harvesting for Rainfed Africa

Introduction to the WAHARA project

In the variety of contexts in Africa – from arid to humid – the availability of water has become increasingly important, making an improved capture and usage of water essential. To ensure a continuous water supply for agricultural crops, water harvesting has been carried out in the earliest agricultural practices; however the environment has changed, as well as the number of people depending on it.

This is where the WAHARA project will make a difference: four countries, four pilot projects, one goal: increasing the potential of water harvesting.


2015 plenary meeting to be held in Burkina Faso

The coming plenary meeting of the WAHARA project is going to be organised by project partner INERA in Burkina Faso. The meeting is planned to be held from 6-9 July 2015.

The meeting program will be published soon (draft version HERE), and also a meeting PowerPoint template will be sent around among the project partners.

The following is requested from the project partners:
