A joint initiative of Centre for Integrated Urban Development (CIUD), WaterAid Nepal and The Coca-Cola Foundation, has handed over the Rainwater Harvesting (RWH) and Groundwater Recharge (GWR) Project, to Ranibari Community Forest Users Group (RCFUG). The RWH & GWR system through cost effective techniques like rain garden, recharge pits and bamboo check dams, was handed over to the RCFUG by Mr. Puskar Lal Shrestha, Executive Director, CIUD, Mr. Kabindra Pudasaini, Program Manager, Water Aid Nepal, and the Coca-Cola system in Nepal. The project handover ceremony was held at Ranibari on Chaitra 12, 2074 to mark the World Water Day 2018. In its relentless approach to creating lasting positive impact on the communities where it serves, The Coca-Cola Company continues to work on water efficiency, water conservation, water replenishment and integrated water resource management in Nepal and across the globe. This initiative is also considered as a climate change adaptive measure to secure water resources for the urban poor.
