Objectif
1.) To appraise and describe farming systems and indigenous soil water management and conservation in the semi-arid areas of Tanzania. 2.) To review past research work in rain water harvesting (RNH) with particular attention to Tanzania. 3.) To assess the technical, economic and social potential for rain water harvesting in semi-arid areas of Kilimanjaro region in Tanzania. 4.) To develop and validate a structured model of rain water harvesting, together with Newcastle University.

Descriptif
To increase sustainability of productivity and population carrying capacity of flood-and-drought prone semi-arid areas there is a need to develop soil-water management techniques that maximise the holding of rain water where it falls and ensure optimum water use by plants.
