Objectives: Sustainable Development of Groundwater Resources in Southern and Eastern Africa (RAF/8/029)

Development objective: to optimize the long term performance of water sector investments by governments and external donors in several Sub-Saharan countries.

Specific objectives of the project are to:

-   Assess recharge, mixing, storage, and vulnerability to pollution of local water resources using isotopic techniques in pilot areas;
-   Develop frameworks, including management plans, for equitable and sustainable use of groundwater resources, based on the pilot study findings;
-   Implement management plans through co-ordination of investment in the water development sector by national governments, UN agencies, the World Bank, and other project partners; and
-   Establish regional co-operation in water resource assessment and management fostered through TCDC, using shared resources now applied to national problems for developing the capacity to address water issues affecting the region as a whole.
