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
