A sufficient, clean drinking water supply is essential to life. Millions throughout the world still do not have access to the basic necessity. After decades of works by governments and organizations to bring portable water to the poorer people of the world, the situation is still dire.
As a measure towards this complexity, rainwater harvesting is an option than has been adopted in many areas of the world where conventional water supply systems have failed to meet people need. It is a technique that has been used since antiquity.
Looking at the high number of wasted decilitres running along our roadside tunnels, I simply sympathize with our people and their leaders. If you think these are personal opinions, then watch this space again come February where all our headlines will be reading severe droughts and deaths.
I would like to urge all the stakeholders with inclusion of the communities to take an advantage of this prime time and advocate for rainwater harvesting.
