Sufficient and safe water should be available to everyone. Unfortunately, many people don’t have access to safe water. How to change that? Harvest rainwater! Since its foundation in 2003, RAIN has been working with its partners to develop, spread and implement rainwater harvesting systems. Our strategy is to offer the right services to the right people, communities, NGOs, companies, governments and all those interested. This is how, we’re growing a network that’s capable of bringing about real change for millions of people by enabling them to have sustainable access to safe water. RAIN gives you the opportunity to become a member of its network by participating in one or more of the following three services: - RAIN Advice: your opportunity to get concrete advice on all elements of rainwater harvesting programmes or projects. There’s no need for you to reinvent the wheel! - RAIN Intelligence: your opportunity to get to know everything you want to know about rainwater harvesting, both from RAIN itself and from others. - RAIN Implementation: your opportunity to work with RAIN on rainwater harvesting. Together, we can develop, implement and/or promote programmes and projects. Our focus: - implementation of small-scale rainwater harvesting projects; - capacity building of local organisations; - the global exchange of knowledge on rainwater harvesting; - lobbying and promoting rainwater harvesting in general and concrete programmes and projects. Keywords in our rainwater harvesting approach are: - 3R: recharge water sources, retain rainwater, reuse water: www.bebuffered.org; - multiple use water services (MUS); - sustainable business development; - value chains.
