The Africa Groundwater Atlas and Literature Archive aims to provide detailed and appropriate information on African groundwater resources to a range of stakeholders. The availability and accessibility of robust groundwater data and information is a major constraint to developing groundwater resources across Africa, and is an additional barrier to undertaking research. This project is funded by the UPGro programme.
