Support Development one drop at a time

Over 16 years of years of experience in complex and changing environment (Senegal, Ghana, Benin, Mexico, Bolivia, etc.) have proven the efficiency of rainwater harvesting, and the impact of this resource, as a vector of resilience and accelerator of sustainable change in developing countries.

 

Our action is based on the implementation of rainwater management systems, in developing countries where access to drinking water and vulnerability to climate change are daily problems, impacting directly the lives of thousands of women and children.

Our intervention is articulated around 3 components: 1) implementation of projects 2) capacity building and 3) development of integrated natural resources management tools and policy.

We offer local governments and communities:

> Expertise to plan, develop and build rainwater harvesting systems

> Tools to decision-makers to ensure the management and sustainability of investments.

> Trainings to enhance the technical and management capacities of people local decision-makers and technical services.

> Support for the development of local and regional strategies for the conservation and management of water resources and resilience and adaptation to climate change.
