E. W. Bob Boulware, P.E., M.B.A. has been appointed to the Board of Directors for the International Rain Harvesting Alliance (IRHA_h2o.org) in Geneva Switzerland. The International Rainwater Harvesting Alliance (IRHA) was created in Geneva in November 2002 following recommendations formulated during the World Summit for Sustainable Development in Johannesburg two months earlier. The mandate calls for the federation and unification of the disparate rainwater harvesting (RWH) movement around the world, to promote rainwater as a valuable water resource and to build on achievements in this field for the fulfilment of the Millennium Development Goals. In partnership with the most eminent organisations and individuals in the field, the IRHA provides an international lobbying and advocacy platform for RWH. It supports the growth of RWH solutions to water supply problems. It also provides a forum for its members to work together or share experiences, and thus for the benefit of people living with water scarcity.
