People living in drought-prone areas are one of the most difficult groups to reach with the millenium development goal (MDGs) efforts. Climate change and increased incidence of extreme weather events will even have a further negative impact on water security. This challenge requires innovative solutions, one of which we refer to as 3R. It is a promising development track, which deserves promotion and funding, combining rainwater harvesting, groundwater management and efficient water use.
