who we are

>WHO WE ARE<

The International Rainwater Harvesting Alliance (IRHA) is a recognized geneva based Non-Governmental Organization (Switzerland), that has been facilitating the adoption of rainwater harvesting technologies in Sub-Saharan regions, Latin American countries (Mexico, Bolivia, etc.) and Asia (Nepal, etc.) providing safe water for drinking and agriculture purposes.
IRHA’s work covers four different areas such as Project implementation, Networking, Awareness Raising and policy influence. Following the 3R approaches: Recharge, Retention and Reuse, IRHA has a developed a successful history of facilitating and delivering sustainable water supplies through collection and use of rainwater and built a solid track records of past projects that have provided water to children, vulnerable populations (orphans) and small scale agriculture, improving significantly the livelihood of thousands. IRHA is looking at innovative solutions to make a better use of water resources in general, from rooftop macro-catchment within the frame of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM), Natural Resources Management (NRM) and Soil & Land Management (SLM).

>OUR VISION<

A world free of water poverty where catchments are protective of populations.

>OUR VALUES<

We strongly believe that rainwater harvesting solutions should be: ACCESSIBLE to benefit the people, REPLICABLE using local knowledge and materials and OWNED by the community to ensure appropriation and sustainability.

IRHA’s projects are therefore: Result based oriented developed around in-depth assessment, following a result-chain in order to monitor the achievements (process) and the achievement of the outputs and impacts at community level.


>AWARDS<

In 2010, IRHA was granted with the ECOSOC status and shortlisted for the “Prix de l’Ethique Suisse”.
