Rainwater harvesting improves lives in El Salvador

Thursday, October 5, 2017

An initiative in rainwater harvesting in El Salvador, launched in February is being promoted by the Global Water Partnership, which, together with Australian aid and the Ford Foundation, have provided funds to get it going, while local organisations and governments have given operational support.

The system’s technology was developed by the consortium Mexichem Amanco, which entered into the market of polyethylene membranes used as waterproof barriers in civil engineering works, sanitary landfills, and artificial lagoons for aquaculture, among other uses.
