Data Short Description: 
Africa groundwater altas.
Data Extended Description: 
The successful and sustainable development of groundwater resources in Africa is critical for future safe water supplies, economic growth and food security in the continent. Doing this successfully relies on good hydrogeological understanding - but much of the data and information that already exists about groundwater in Africa is not available to the people who could make use of it. We have worked with partners across Africa to make more of this information freely accessible: you can access it online now by following the links below. (British Geological Society)
