The Rainfall Harvesting program implemented by the Palestinian Hydrology Group has many dimensions and it has a political, social and economic impact on the rural areas of the West Bank. The construction of ponds prevents land from being confiscated, it creates new jobs in the agricultural sector and it brings economical gains to the farmers. The construction of cisterns helps to reduce expenses paid by the poor families for purchasing water, it helps to upgrade the hygienic standards of the rural families. It also helps women in their daily lives, as the women in rural areas are responsible for providing water to the family. It also enhances the living standards of the rural families and helps to overcome the water shortage in the Palestinian areas.
