2012). Water storage increases the availability of and access to water, thus increasing adaptive capacity, agricultural production, and water security, and thereby decreasing the climate vulnerability of societies (Mc Cartney and Smakhtin 2010; see Fig. 1). Other authors have also found that water harvesting can make a useful contribution to agricultural productivity both under current climate conditions as well as in future (Boelee 2013; Critchley and Siegert 1991; Ngigi 2009). The aim of water storage intervention in future would thus be to increase resilience to climate variability.
