Rainwater harvesting contributes to drought management

Posted: 2010-12-30

GWP Mediterranean promotes rainwater harvesting (RWH) as a way to manage drought on islands in the region. RWH can help islands become more water secure and adapt to climate change.

A multi-year programme to pilot small and medium-scale RWH systems in public buildings is underway on seven islands in the Cyclades, in the Aegean Sea, Greece. Technicians have been trained, and an educational resource, The Gift of Rain, and activities for schools have been developed. The Coca Cola 3E and Coca Cola Hellas Mission Water corporate social responsibility programme supports the project and collaborates in carrying out activities.
