There has been some limited research carried out in the Caribbean on rainwater harvesting. These publications have focused on rainwater diversion for flood control and estimation of rainwater capture potential. This Toolkit includes relevant publications for the Caribbean region gathered from on-line sources from across the globe. The list of publications contained in this Toolkit are listed below.
