Training Workshop on Rainwater Harvesting for Irrigation and Groundwater recharge

Islamabad: Rainwater may become an important source of water if harvested through different simple management techniques. That includes; storing rooftop rainwater into surface and subsurface storage tank to use in lawn irrigation or to divert this rainwater into groundwater recharge. This method of groundwater recharge will be more effective if adopted at small scale. Taking on this concept, Behbud Association of Pakistan approached PCRWR to conduct one day training workshop on Training Workshop on Rainwater Harvesting for Irrigation and Groundwater recharge. The participants of the training were comprised of more than 60 women community workers and women executives from Behbud Association. Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Mohammad Ashraf, Director General PCRWR remarked that, Women are the principal users of water at domestic level. It is very essential to provide training to the women on beneficial use of water resources, particularly rainwater. MrsAbida Malik, Senior Vice President of Behbud Association while thanking PCRWR in organizing this training workshop said that, Behbud Association is very passionate in implementing whatever they learn. PCRWR will be very pleased to see the tangible outcomes of this training workshop. Rear Admiral (R) Muhammad Mushtaq, Executive Director said that Behbud Association and PCRWR has a lot to work together in future. He also appreciated the enthusiasm of members of Behbud Association for participation.
