|Managing the Water Buffer for Development and Climate Change Adaptation|
This book explores how to maximize the use of groundwater and rainwater for development and climate change adaptation in an approach called 3R. 3R stands for Recharge, Retention and Reuse.
The vision of 3R is to give people the means and confidence to protect their livelihoods in response to climatic changes, and to improve local water management to ensure reliable access to water, economic development and the integrity of their environment.
This book is prepared for land use planners and catchment managers, for all those concerned with water management and climate change, whether working in government, water utilities, irrigation agencies, insurance and investment companies, private sector or civil society – in arid and humid areas alike.
