WAHARA studies local WH solutions in 4 study sites throughout Africa from a transdisciplinary perspective that takes into account not only bio-physical aspects, but also socio-economic aspects and political conditions. The project works closely together with stakeholders, to make sure that selected solutions are really meeting their needs. The effectiveness of WH technologies is assessed under different environmental and socio-economic conditions.

The project aims to develop solutions applicable beyond local study sites and indeed across the continent. In order to reach this objective, study sites are selected that are representative for rainfed Africa: Tunisia in the North, Burkina Faso in the West, Zambia in the South and Ethiopia in the East.

  • Design water harvesting technologies
  • Assess the on-site and downstream impact of WH technologies
  • Develop criteria for sustainable impact on improving livelihood
  • Develop guidelines to facilitate stakeholder learning
