It substantiates the methodology of dew harvesting based on a case study from the Kothara village in the Kutch region. The book provides insights into the simple and people friendly technology of dew harvesting. It explains the exemplary procedure that Prof. Sharan followed: study of the dew resource of the site, chemical analysis of dew water to verify potability, test of dew harvesting materials, construction of small and pilot-sized dew condensers, and ultimately the construction of a large dew production plant.
