This is the response to a DEWPoint helpdesk enquiry about harvesting
rainwater from round houses with thatched roofs in Sudan. It looks at
previous experience with thatched roofs, how the thatch might affect
water quality, perceptions of quality and what kind of guttering is
suitable for round houses.
This report was produced by DEW Point, a Resource Centre for
Environment, Water and Sanitation, that was funded by DFID and managed
by a consortium of companies led by Harewelle International Limited. The
Resource Centre closed in 2012.
