The latest WaterBlog: One House, One Buffer
The Djerbians in Tunisia are able to live with limited water due to an ingenious trick. They build their houses with a central courtyard surrounded by a slanted roof that directs the water flow into the courtyard where a shallow pool is located. This shallow pool acts as a decoration for the house, but helps in mitigating the temperature during the hot summers as well. The pool is connected to an underground cistern to collect excess water which will be available during the dry season. Read the full blogpost here.
