Incorporating rural technology, Kerala Government will explore all possibilities in rainwater harvesting, Minister for Cooperation and Tourism, Kadakampally Surendran informed a seminar on rainwater harvesting organised by Habitat Technology Group as part of its ongoing 30th-anniversary celebrations.
The rainwater run-off in Kerala has grown into such a grave situation that it does not even collect a quarter of the rainwater stored in an arid state like Rajasthan, he told. Construction methods have been transformed to such an extent that even a drop of water is not allowed to infiltrate. The government would take all steps to promote green construction protecting the earth and water. It would support organisations like Habitat Technology in its effort to conserve the greenery through rural construction technology, the Minister said.
Fritz Porcheke, Director, Research and Development, WISY AG, a German organisation which has been a global provider and the leading manufacturer of high-quality rainwater harvesting systems, presented the theme paper in the seminar. Dr.WR Reddy, the Director, National Institute of Rural Development and Panchayat Raj, T. Sivarajan, President, “Uravu”, Dhareshan Unnithan, Director, Energy Management Centre-Kerala, participated in the discussion.
The exhibition on affordable ethnic construction and rural technology, organised by Habitat at Poojappura Ground is drawing huge crowds including eminent persons from various sectors. Water resources minister, Mathew T. Thomas was one among them yesterday. The exhibition will culminate on Sunday with a function attended by the Chief minister Pinnarayi Vijayan.
