Rainwater catchment systems for domestic supply
by John Gould and Erik Nissen-Petersen
Published by Intermediate Technology Publications Ltd., 103/105 Southampton Row, London WCIB 4HH. ISBN: 1 85339 456 4. Price
£ 14.95. 334pages. Paperback.

Over the last two decades there have been intensive efforts to provide more and more people with supplies of clean water for domestic uses. Despite these programmes there are still around one billion people who do not have easy access to clean water.Most of the efforts to provide a clean water supply have concentrated on providing wells or a piped supply, while the collection and storage of rainwater runoff from roofs, and yards has been generally neglected, yet it is far cheaper and simpler to do. This book shows how it can be done. The focus is on implementation of roof and ground catchment systems for meeting either total or supplementary household water requirements. All aspects of design and construction are covered, including simple methods of sizing systems, erection of gutters, choice of materials, construction techniques, training, operation and maintenance. In addition, non-technical factors such as water quality, health, social, financial, cultural, political, institutional and gender issues are discussed. The text is fully supported with drawings and photographs and a detailed iilustrated step-by-step account is provided of how to build several different types of household rainwater tanks with volumes from 2 to 90 cubic metres. There are also useful contact addresses, internet resources, details of construction manuals, construction procedures and repairs of existing tanks. The authors have spent over 20 years constructing and researching rainwater systems in Africa and Asia, and they draw on these experiences with a number of case studies.

Sustainable Technology Development
by P. Weaver, L. Jansen, G. van Grootveld, E. Van Speigel and P. Vergragt (2000).
Greenleaf Publishing, Aizlewood Business Centre, Aizlewood's Mill, Nursery Street, Sheffield S38GG, UK. ISBN: 1-874719-09-8. 304p. Hbk.

The Dutch government commissioned a five-year research programme to determine what technologies and development paths are needed in order to achieve a sustainable world, using a method called "backcasting." The project began with a vision of a sustainable future in 50 years that met all the known environmental and economic constraints, and in which factor 10 to factor 20 eco-efficiency had been achieved. The backcasting method set out to describe steps that should be taken now, so that the necessary technologies and systems would be in place. This "Virtual hindsight" led to 15 case study projects on nutrition, shelter, mobility, materials and water. Sustainable Technology Development presents several of the case studies. Prospects for sustainable technologies are evaluated.

Living with drought: drought mitigation for sustainable livelihoods
by Astrid von Kotze and Ailsa Holloway
Published by Intermediate Technology Publications Ltd., 103-105 Southampton Row, London, WCIB 41111, UK. ISBN 0-86486-388-8. Price £ 19. 95. Paperback and video.

This is a two part pack - a book and a video containing three training films lasting just over one hour.The aim of this double package is to remind people that they must relearn to live with the reality of drought. Droughts are not new, many communities across the world have been living with these disasters for centuries. The droughts that have occurred recently have been the worst in living memory, and the affected communities have needed emergency assistance. The dependence on that assistance, however, can be lessened. The films show that these recent droughts, severe as they were, have been the catalyst that was needed to get affected communities in Namibia, Zambia and Lesotho to do things that will mitigate the effects of the drought.
The films show how communities in each country have taken action by introducing rotational grazing, de-stocking, water conservation, grain storage, seed banks, adding-value to farm produce and producing articles for sale. All these activities are making their lives far more sustainable, and giving them greater confidence to withstand the onslaught of another drought.
The book of learning materials is divided up to show how other communities can initiate similar activities so that they, too, can mitigate the effects of drought.
The pack is well thought out, and simple to follow. Although it is produced from experiences in southern Africa, the principles will apply anywhere in the world.

ISBN 0-85404-885-5. Price £ 49.50. Pages 100. Hard bound. Code No. BP 8


Producing large quantities of waste is not only environmentally unacceptable, it is also not viable in economic terms. The chemical industry, particularly the speciality and pharmaceuticals sectors, is becoming increasingly aware of the advantages associated with clean technology, particularly in terms of competitive advantage and environmental benefits.

Bringing together an understanding of the concepts and values of clean technology by using case studies from some leading European countries, this book provides an insight into subjects such as catalysis; process intensification; and how to measure the " green" value of a process. It also highlights the role played by both the chemical and chemical engineering disciplines in the development of cleaner processes.

Clean Technology for the Manufacture of Speciality Chemicals will prove valuable reading for process development chemists and engineers, particularly those in the specialities and pharmaceuticals sectors, and will also be an important source of teaching material for the growing number of clean technology chemistry courses.
