The Water Harvesting/Aquaculture Project ( P): was a five-year project funded
by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). The principal goal was
to "improve the quality of rural life in selected developing countries through
the introduction of improved technology in ways that would balance local capacity
for development with total community needs and potentials."
WHAP involved collaboration with six private and voluntary organizations (PVO's)
in 41 countries during: h project period. The project provided technical training
and assistance on water harvesting and aquaculture technology to field staff working
with local organizations, communities and individuals. Training participants acquired
background knowledge. o- :make. preliminary project designs and assessments. Technical
ass -stance was provided to those who initiated projects but lacked the kills
and knowledge necessary to go beyond preplanning and site assessment.
