Summary

The International Rainwater Harvesting Alliance (IRHA) was created in 2002 following the World Summit for Sustainable Development in Johannesburg, South Africa in response to the continued water crisis facing the 1.2 billion people without access to safe drinking water. The nonprofit organization is focused on facilitating the adoption of rainwater harvesting technologies throughout the Sub-Saharan region, Latin America, and Asia. Specifically, IRHA is involved in the implementation of projects in the field that make a better use of water resources in general, as well as provide safe water for drinking and agricultural purposes. The Alliance has built a solid track record of past projects that have provided water to children, vulnerable populations, and small scale agriculture, improving significantly the livelihood of thousands. IRHA also aims to exchange knowledge between members, to raise awareness about rainwater, and to build a worldwide network of rainwater harvesters.
