The average annual rainfall in Assam is 2818mm, of which Guwahati alone receives 1698mm. However, the impact of rainfall in the state is zonal and not uniform throughout the state. As a result some areas are inundated, others remain rain-deprived. At this point it is wise to invest in rain water harvesting.
Assam demonstrates huge potential for successful rainwater harvesting. If implemented on a larger scale, it could be instrumental in curbing problems like floods, soil erosion, drought, water scarcity, and water-logging. This apart, the collected water could also be used for various activities like agriculture, animal husbandry, infrastructural development etc.
Since Large-scale Rainwater Harvesting won’t be a reality without the active participation of citizen at large, Government of Assam solicits your valuable and innovative suggestions covering ways to take rainwater harvesting from domestic to public setups.

Last date for submission of ideas is 31st July, 2017

Majority of Assamese people haven't felt the scarcity of water. Hence, there has to be a value proposition for preserving rain water. Until and unless Government can't convince citizens about its intent of any initiative, citizen participation can never be significant.
