African Groundwater Literature

This new section has been developed to allow members and partners to share published and grey literature that focuses on groundwater management issues in Africa. We publish here our new training manual. "The Integration of Groundwater Management into Transboundary Basin Organizations in Africa." Other publications and links to publications of interest and value to the African hydrogeological community will be added regularly from time to time.

GLOBAL GROUNDWATER GOVERNANCE. 
Three publications on the Global Groundwater Governance Project - these were launched at the Korea World Water Forum 2015 and set out the finding of the GEF Project. 
These three publications spell out a global vision for the future management of groundwater on a global scale and represent important insights into the observations and opinions of global decision makers.
