The NURWH manual has been written with an intent to provide a framework for effective implementation of rainwater harvesting in ULBs, following a step by step process of understanding the city’s/town’s objectives, defining technical details of rainwater harvesting, making amendments to legislation and bylaws, and also has examples of best management practices for rainwater harvesting design and utilization. It has been intended to address the coalition of policy objectives of the planning and building sectors, as well as those of the health authorities, water authorities, and local governments for strategic implementation of RWH. 

The audience for the document is envisioned to be Urban Development Departments / Town Planning Departments of various states and City / Town governments.
