On behalf of the rainwater harvesting community- the International Rainwater Harvesting Alliance has submitted a commitment to the UN Secretary General's Water Action Agenda.
The commitment states that we, as a global alliance [aim] to improve water security through promoting rainwater harvesting and storage for households, schools and health centres; for agriculture and ecosystems; and for urban climate resilience.
The initiative aims at promoting Rainwater Management in response to international agendas (SDGs 2, 6, 13) and to integrate rainwater management as a sustainable solution to climate extremes (drought, flooding, loss of soil, etc.).
More specifically, the commitment focuses on strengthening initiatives, synergies and networking in the promotion and dissemination of rainwater harvesting (RWH) systems as a sustainable, effective and appropriate solution to the challenges of climate change.
