Earth receives approximately 1050 mm of rainfall every year.

The activity of storing this rain water for later use is usually referred to as Rainwater Harvesting. In other words, rainwater harvesting is the activity involving collection of rainwater for direct use, indirect use, storage, recharging of ground water and other such uses.
