The resource person, Shri. Bharath J., spoke about the importance of rainwater harvesting in the present era. Sir stated the collection as well as the storage of rainwater into natural bodies or artificial reservoirs with a view to keeping a check on the overflow of surface water and other methods of rainwater harvesting, such as rooftop harvesting. Sir also spoke about how people will benefit from rainwater harvesting, which includes irrigation, gardening, livestock, etc. It helps in improving the supply of water and the production of food, thereby eventually giving you food security. Rural areas or households that suffer from water scarcity do benefit from rainwater harvesting systems. Rainwater harvesting ensures a constant supply of water, which in turn provides food security and significantly contributes to income generation.
