What is a webinar? It is an online presentation where you can hear a presenter, watch their slides and have the opportunity to ask questions. If you cannot attend the live event, a recording is usually posted online.
RWSN has started 2015 with a series of ten webinars about groundwater, self-supply approaches and equality. Presenters from more than 15 different organisations, working in over 15 countries are sharing their practical experiences and research findings. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions, and meet others with similar interests. You can register for one, or several webinars by following the link: http://tinyurl.com/RWSN2015A
In his blog post, Henk Holtslag highlighted that muitple use of water is very critical in ending poverty. I have already shown in my earlier discussions that provision of safe drinking water is not enough. In the developing countries where agriculture employs the bulk of the poor people, availability of water for families, their animals and crops is very essential. When we talk of “provision” the quick question is by who? Self supply then becomes the ideal solution. But how many of our governments, Communities and development agencies are promoting this concept? Do they know much about it? Do they know it exist and it is very feasible?
