An investigation into the potential to reduce the cost of constructed rainwater harvesting tanks in Uganda MSc Thesis Academic Year 2006/7

Author: CRUDDAS, P.
Year of Publishing: 2007
Publisher: Cranfield University
Institution:

Uganda is a country in the humid tropics, with a climate favourable for the utilisation of rainwater harvesting as a significant source of water for domestic purposes. In the last decade rainwater harvesting has seen increased exposure as a promising solution for increasing safe water coverage in the country, although its widespread implementation is hindered by high per capita costs compared to more conventional, communal water supply schemes. It is also noted that rainwater projects are more expensive in Uganda than other countries.

Publisher: Cranfield University
Institution:

Although greater funding is being channelled to the water sector, new approaches are needed if international targets for safe water supply are to be met in rural areas. Supported self-supply is one such approach. By focussing on building a supporting environment, supported self-supply builds on local initiatives, seeking to encourage and improve them. A pilot project was initiated in 2006 in Uganda to explore the potential of such an approach.

Improving water supplies for sedentary cattle-owning communities in Bundibugyo, Uganda MSc Thesis Academic Year 2006/7

Publisher: Cranfield University
Institution:

Water resources management is a particular challenge for cattle-owning communities. Rwebisengo Sub-County lies in Bundibugyo District in Western Uganda. This rural region is water-stressed because water access can be limited regarding quantity and quality, and the conventional technologies present challenges of sustainability. As cattle husbandry firmly remains the primary source of livelihoods, and transhumant pastoralism is the predominant farming system, animals and the mobility involved in the search for pasture and water are other elements of the challenge.
