MODEL PROJECTS

CSE is constantly deluged with queries, opinions and ideas from people who are concerned about the prevailing water crisis and are keen to play an active role in managing water. The Sixteen model projects provide the answers, at least to some of them. These also act as effective tools to establish the fact that rainwater harvesting can be taken up and implemented successfully in urban centers, by all concerned individuals who are looking for a way to fulfill their own water needs.

Rain centre at Sayla (Gujarat)

The Sayla Rain centre is located in Surendra Nagar, a drought prone district of North Gujarat. Scanty and uncertain rainfall make livelihood difficult for local people including agricultural activities. Even availability of drinking water remains a major issue for people. The rain center houses information in the form of panels, working models, artificial rainfall, water quality testing laboratory. It is actually a rural knowledge resource center on rainwater harvesting and water management and provides information on how rainfall can be harvested in semi arid condition.
