Technologies for freshwater augmentation are wide and varied making it impossible for this source book to cover them all. This Source Book attempts to cover those technologies that are African, traditional and unique. Periodic reviews of the included technologies will be necessary. Part B covers these technologies in three sectors: agriculture, domestic water supply, and mining and industry. Each technology is classified according to its application within that sector. Four key areas of application have been used for this classification: water harvesting; water quality upgrading; water conservation; wastewater recycling and reuse. Some technologies may be used in more than one sector and this will be indicated accordingly.
