LRWHF works very closely with local partner organizations and community based organizations to carry out the pilot projects. The entire project cycle mainly emphasizes on participatory approach and thereby strengthens the local community in planning, implementing, monitoring, operation and maintenance and linking them with external service organizations. Therefore at the end of the project each beneficiary becomes more independent in maintaining his or her own system.
The experiences gained in each pilot projects are shared with professionals and users. Also numbers of research components are involved in each pilot project, in order to improve the technology in relation to social, financial and technical aspects. For the last few years, different types of low cost rainwater harvesting tanks have been developed by the forum in collaboration with other partner organizations.
