Keywords Water Harvesting from Rocks, climate change

Harvesting water can offer a great solution in places where water distribution is irregular due to the effects of climate change.

Erik Nissen-Petersen (ASAL consultants) developed in cooperation with RAIN foundation and TheWaterChannel a unique film "Water from Rocks" in which water harvesting techniques are shown. These techniques are used for centuries in the drylands of Africa.
