Water Harvesting and Conservation – Volume 1: Development of a comprehensive learning package
Expanded Title:The comprehensive learning package for water harvesting and conservation (WH&C) was developed within a ‘training of trainers’ framework targeting three user groups: 1) learners at training organisations (who will later work with gardeners and farmers) 2) facilitators at training organisations 3) resource-poor gardeners and farmers. The learning package comprises three main parts: 1) A Technical Module covering water, soils and WH&C methods 2) A Facilitation Module covering facilitation techniques within a Participatory Innovation Development approach 3) A set of Farmer’s Handouts with illustrated steps on how to implement the methods. Each of the technical and facilitation modules comprised two volumes. There is a detailed, annotated and illustrated manual for learners, and a Facilitation and Assessment Guide for course facilitators. These are set at the level of NQF 5 on the (new) 10 tier scale. The set of farmers handouts are designed for people with low literacy and are illustrated ‘how-to’ instructions for the water harvesting and conservation methods. The materials were developed in close consultation with key stakeholders to ensure relevance of materials to likely organisations of learning, and to end-user needs. The draft materials were successfully piloted in a formal learning environment and were reviewed by seven agricultural colleges
