Aug. 14 (Bloomberg) -- The African Development Bank has allocated almost $1 million for a rainwater harvesting grant designed to assist about 150,000 Kenyans in rural, water-stressed communities.

The 690,000-euro project from the African Water Facility includes building separate improved ventilated latrines for boys and girls in schools, installing water tanks for roof catchment and farm ponds for surface runoff to help “minimize conflict over water” and build resilience to drought conditions, the AfDB said in a statement.
