Developing quantitative aquifer maps for Africa

Author

Description

In 2010 the Department for International Development (DFID) commissioned a BGS-led team to undertake a one-year study aimed to improve understanding of the resilience of African groundwater to climate change and links to livelihoods. As part of this project, the research team undertook hydrogeological field studies in West and East Africa, examined the linkages between water use and household economy, and developed an aquifer resilience map for Africa using geological and hydrologeological maps and information.
