Africa's tiny 'sand dams' can save millions from drought

Africa's tiny 'sand dams' can save millions from drought | Climate Smart Agriculture | Scoop.it

...A sand dam is a reinforced concrete wall built in a seasonal riverbed to capture and store water beneath sand. It can last for at least 30-50 years, requiring virtually no operation and maintenance costs, making it an affordable way to address food and water insecurity.

 

Seasonal rains quickly fill the dam with water and soil. The soil is made up of silt and sand. The heavier sand sinks behind the dam, whilst the lighter silt washes downstream. The sand then accumulates until the dam is completely full of sand up to the spillway.

 

Sand dams can capture and store between two to 29 million litres of water beneath the sand for communities of 1,000 people in dryland regions of the world...

CGIAR Climate's curator insight, July 3, 2013 2:48 AM

The IWMI research, which was carried under the CGIAR Research Programme on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), also found that other methods have also been effective in dealing with shifting rainfall patterns in Sri Lanka, including rain water harvesting.

Sonja Vermeulen, head of research for the CCAFS programme, told Thomson Reuters Foundation the new research highlights the importance of supporting farmers’ efforts to manage climate stresses, despite inconclusive evidence on the impact of more extreme weather trends.

“It is imperative that countries take decisive action on adaptation to climate change, rather than wait for a global movement take place,” she said.

Vermeulen said the Sri Lankan example shows that local, indigenous knowledge and practices can sometimes be put to good use quickly, rather than waiting for newer technologies that could take years and millions of dollars to develop.
