AGW-Net together with its partners and sponsors, Cap Net, IWMI, GRIPP, BGR and UNESCO, implemented a one-day course on Wednesday 20th July 2016 on Groundwater Management in River Basin Organizations during the Africa Water Week held in Dar es Salaam (Tanzania).
The course will be implement by Africa Groundwater Network (AGW-Net), in collaboration with GRIPP and BGR.
The content will be adapted from the training manual on groundwater management developed together with Cap-Net and partners. Taking advantage of the gathering of experts at Africa Water Week, the course will be a one-day event with sessions and interactive discussion.
Groundwater is the main water source available in many African countries; it has contributed to improve access to water for achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Its management in the context of a river/lake basin requires knowledge and a specific approach for management of both resources (surface and ground water) within IWRM.
