This solution has both a technical/infrastructural and an institutional component. The solution revolves around an integrated planning of small reservoirs for enhancing multiple livelihoods of small-holders farmers in sub-Saharan Africa. Small reservoirs (e.g. earth dams of less than 10 meters high) impound surface water flows and buffer against extreme weather events and changing climatic patterns. They procure a much needed source of water for millions of small holders in rural areas.
