Bamboo Water Tank
For the last 9 months, with the funds from Environment Canada and technical support from INBAR, ABARI had been working on bamboo based water tank and renewable means to transport water. The technology, developed in Nepal was also transfered to Ethiopia. The project’s aim was “to scale up the use of local resources, such as bamboo, gravel and sand to alleviate the pressures caused by erratic rainfall patterns, which are under threat of further exacerbation by climate change. This manual showcases the lessons learned from the project and is designed for entrepreneurs, development and water resource management professionals working with rural communities to adopt and adapt these new technologies within their own work.”
