Abstract:The focus of this manual is on simple, field scale systems for improved production of crops, trees and rangeland species in drought prone areas. Water harvesting systems for water supply such as haffirs, ponds and rooftop tanks are not covered, nor are large-scale water spreading systems (spate irrigation). The manual provides the field worker with selection criteria and detailed technical design, mostly drawn from Sub- Saharan countries, as well as information on field layout and construction
