Description

In Tigray, Norther Ethiopia, excess rainfall is being captured by series of micro-dams. The walls of these dams are typically constructed with soil and covered with a layer of stones. On average 1.5 to 2 million cubic meter of water can be captured in this way, providing water for agricultural and domestic usages; while recharging groundwater resources and creating a cooler local micro climate.
