CWHM : CERTIFICATE IN WATER HARVESTING AND MANAGEMENT
About This Programme:
Over the years with consistent rise in population, urbanisation and industrialisation, increasing demand for agriculture produce, has led to over-exploitation of limited surface as well as groundwater resource. This has also resulted in sharp decline in groundwater table. The situation can be effectively reversed through rainwater harvesting which essentially means collection and storage of the rainwater from rooftop or from surface catchments for future use. Despite various initiatives including legislative measures, very little rainfall is conserved and harvested. This certificate programme intends to generate mass awareness and disseminate skills through trained human resources, about rainwater harvesting techniques and management for the optimal use of harvested water by all concerned.
