Short course road water harvesting Yemen

This short course was developed in Yemen on road water harvesting. Explaining what techniques can be of great use to facilitate beneficial water management.

In this short course training different methods of retaining and recharging water from roads, making use of on-going investment in roads development and rehabilitation to secure local water resources is explained deeply. It argues to take a multi-functional look at roads: whilst roads deliver transport and communication services, at the same time they can contribute to water security, flood control and erosion mitigation. In this way the high investment in road connectivity in Yemen can even render a much broader impact on livelihoods and economic development.

This short course training is initiated following extensive consultations with several water and agriculture sector organizations, and road authority in Yemen, as well as with international partners of WEC involved in the implementation of the Yemen Niche 027, Flood-Based Farming, Roads for Water and other projects.
