Project Details

Description

Over 15 million people do not have access to basic water access in Madagascar and in the south the UN is declaring the first climate change famine. Just three hours to the east, despite a high rainfall climate, over four million people still live without basic and convenient access to clean water. Not having convenient access to clean water severely limits all other development and effectively traps people, especially women, in poverty.
This Frontiers Champions project, led by Tatirano Social Enterprise and funded by the RAENG aims to showcase brilliant examples of rainwater harvesting from Madagascar and around the world as pioneers in the application of appropriate technology.
