Launching Road-Run Off Water Harvesting Campaign for 2017/18 Season in Malawi

While the onset of rains marks the beginning of the cropping season in Malawi, it also brings a lot of challenges like flooding, soil erosion and damage to infrastructure including roads. Road run off if not properly managed is a hassle for many farmers whose fields lie along or nearby water ways, roads or footpaths. To avert these, farmers of Mitundu and Chiwamba Extension Planning Areas (EPAs) and Rainwater Harvesting Association of Malawi (RHAM) through the flood Based Livelihood Network Malawi Chapter (FBLN – Mw) on 1st December, 2017 launched roads for water activities for the 2017/2018 growing season. In total 86 farmers are participating in the programme this year up from 17 farmers who were trained last year. Check out the report here

Key findings of the Roads for Polder Water Management in Bangladesh

This past November, two validation workshops took place in Bangladesh to present, discuss and validate the key findings of Roads to the Rescue project. The first workshop, 9th of November in Khulna, local representatives (BWDB, UP, WMA, farmers and teachers) highlighted as main issues in Polder 32 (Dacope Upazila): more gated culverts are needed and include the flood shelter function in the embankment design. Second workshop, 15th of November in Khajuriya (Barisal District), local representatives (LGED, UP and WMA) discussed as main issues of a small LGED polder: the poor state of embankments and roads, insufficient budget and human capacity, insufficient culverts and sluices. Therefore, common solutions for both polders are: increase number and capacity of water crossing structures, improve the design of (road) embankments, build new embankments and canal dredging.

These are the two main presentations:
