Rain water harvesting pond


Water harvesting pond is the key for small farmers to harvest rainwater to be used later in the drier month for agricultural production. With this pond, the farmers can apply at least 3 cropping cycles of vegetable production per year, which is good for them to produce food and incomes for the family. Normally, short rotation vegetable varieties are planted to reduce the use of water and to reduce vulnerability to water shortage.

This pond was supported by CFAP farmer federation to a woman vegetable farmer through its climate change adaptation project.
