One of the most powerful programs to face climate change in areas affected by drought or lack of clean water
About the project
The Rain Harvesting Tank was developed by Fundación Plurales, under the program originally called Sed Cero.
It enables communities to use locally sourced materials to build a rain harvesting tank to get access to clean water, both for private use and agriculture production.
Impact and Main Outcomes
One of the main effects of climate change is the change of weather patterns and, consequently, the variation in the amount of rain that a certain rural area receives.
This project enables families and communities to collect more efficiently rainwater, instead of being forced to use the water of polluted rivers or having to build wells. This system also enables communities to optimise the water for private use and agriculture, especially when matched with low-cost hydroponics systems.
