The answer to this depends so much on local geography (rainfall, slopes, catchment size, geology, etc) and for what purpose the water is used for (just small-scale irrigation or domestic as well) but I recommend this book

Water Harvesting – Guidelines to Good Practice - WOCATlink text

If there are any specific technologies that you would like more advise on I'm happy to help

Further to Martin’s post, may I suggest some technologies to consider for harvesting water from seasonal rivers

1) Sand dams and sub-surface dams. You can download the latest edition of our sand dam manual (NB it is still being reviewed). https://www.dropbox.com/sh/lof0apcwqcf8xoq/UEDYAcmfyW
2) Water abstraction from sand rivers. Further information on Water from Sand Rivers is available online. 3) Water spreading weirs. Further information on water spreading weirs is available online. 4) Spate irrigation. Further information is available from the spate irrigation network
