Farmers clearing a piece of land to construct a storage pond.
Using animal traction to built a pond.
The embankments are stabilized and the pond is almost ready for use.
This is an example of a road runoff harvesting technique.
Road side runoff is channeled into farmlands (used to improve soil moisture and reduce runoff to downstream areas).
Local communities implementing innovative techniques suitable to their local conditions.
Animals are drinking water from a water storage pond.
Representative of the communities affected by the flood explaining the issue at Freweign-Hawzien road.
A borrow pit (250m long, 80m wide and 15m seep) used as water storage in Axum area.
A 3 m deep surface reservoir (Horeye) filled with flood water from road sides at the Freweign-Hawzien road.
Hand-dug well which is under construction in Freweign (Sinkata) area.
A road passing close to an existing hand-dug well which is used for small-scale irrigation along the Freweign-Hawzien road.
Shallow well (for water supply) at the road side of the Abreha Wetsbeha-Hawzien road, Ethiopia. Well was developed after the road construction but there is a plan to upgrade the road to an asphalt.
Hand-dug well for small-scale irrigation along the Abreha Westbeha-Hawzien road.
A borrow pit (see next picture) will be turned into a small lake – the Qingcao lake. This artificial lake will serve as the backdrop for film productions as it is located at the site of this permanent outdoor movie set.
This borrow pit (dug for the high speed railway line in the back) is being further excavated and landscaped. Gaomi County, Shandong.
Ponding of water at the road side and endangered dwelling houses from floods from culverts. The consultant of the road plans to channel the flow from culverts down up to 1 km from the road.
View of the plains at Freweign area which the road under construction passes through. The communities at down side of the road are endangered by the flood from culverts.
Typical gravel road.
Farmers diverting water from a culvert into a percolation pond for supplementary irrigation and groundwater recharge in Tigray.
Water from a culvert is channeled into farmlands (used for groundwater recharge and improving soil moisture).
39. Road side runoff is diverted and spread into farm lands through series of channels, Tigray.
Construction of deep trenches at downstream side of roads to recharge the groundwater and improve moisture conditions of soils.
