The settlement of Otjomuise in Windhoek, Namibia experiences flooding and erosion problems during the rainy season. The goal of this project, sponsored by the Namibia Housing Action Group, was to increase community capacity to solve rainwater problems, and was achieved using participatory methods to assess problems and develop and implement solutions. The results of this project showed evidence of sustainability for community-based initiatives in Otjomuise. A broader outreach was initiated using knowledge exchange meetings and an informational and inspirational pamphlet.
