Erratic and periodically heavy rainfall make smallholder agriculture and market gardening difficult to sustain. This project involves the harvesting roof (clean) water from school grounds into two separate storage tank systems. This water is used by members of the community in gardens established on school grounds, down slope from the water storage structures. Water is accessed by means of valves, with each gardener equipped with a valve key connected to a hose-pipe for watering crops throughout the year. A major benefit of the project was the stabilisation of the banks stopping erosion and flooding of the lower school building.

Despite the success of Phase I, a lack of sustained institutional support and resourcing has put this pilot project at risk and provides a compelling argument for the Durban CEBA initiative as a means by whcih a structured and programmatic approach could guarantee ongoing adaptation action.
