EC Project

The aim of the EC project was to generate reliable information about domestic roofwater harvesting (DRWH) for water policy planners, supply professionals and ultimately, householders. The Projects comprise the assessment of existing knowledge and the generation of new knowledge on four critical and strongly interacting aspects of DRWH, namely: technology, health implications, impact on domestic water security and compatibility with institutional value systems; in consequence there are four tasks. The tasks are headed by each of the four partners. The partners are Warwick University, UK; FAKT, Germany; Lanka Rain Water Harvesting Forum, Sri Lanka and Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), India.

The publication listed below are the Milestone reports generated by each partner under the task headings.
