Book of abstracts and convention brief. Rainwater Harvesting 3rd Bangladesh Convention

It is with great pleasure that I pen this foreword for Book of Abstracts on the occasion of 3rd Bangladesh convention on rainwater harvesting. This book is the culmination of the hard work of a number of experts who have long been championing the rainwater harvesting, and reflects a growing body of knowledge that is indigenous, experiential, and of fundamental importance to the sustainability of our country’s scarce water resources..

Prospects, Principles and Practice of Urban Rainwater Harvesting in Bangladesh

Urban areas of Bangladesh are facing an ironical situation today. On one hand there is the acute water scarcity and on the other, the streets are often waterlogged during the monsoons. This has led to serious problems with quality and quantity of groundwater. To solve the problem of urban areas, the systematic development of rainwater harvesting system is a demand at present.

WaterAid Bangladesh​ publishes a book titled "Prospects, Principles and Practice of Urban Rainwater Harvesting in Bangladesh: A Guidebook for Professionals, Practitioners and Students" to come out as systematic guideline of Urban Rainwater Harvesting in Bangladesh. For details click HERE
