Rainwater harvesting is an age old approach that is used to provide supplementary and sometimes primary water sources for households in Uganda. In rural Uganda today, rainwater harvesting is becoming more relevant in providing water for households as it provides a water source that is convenient. The Uganda Rainwater Harvesting Association (URWA) was formed in order to raise the profile of rainwater harvesting in Uganda and has done so through building the capacity of common interest groups in skills to provide rainwater harvesting facilities for their households.

Women are the major contributors to water management, at the same time they are the first victims of water crisis & agricultural mutation. They suffer from a great lack of access to decision making posts on local & national levels, their participation is not active & rather representative & rhetoric. This solution will help in reducing that by supporting the involvement & role of women at water/environmental institutions & the local community that receives related projects by creating a gender responsive-stakeholder’s engagement policy to be adopted by water/environmental institutions on both internal (institutional system) & external (receiving community) levels.
