Groundwater Governance: Regional Consultation in Nairobi

On 29-31 of May, the 2nd Regional Consultation of the Groundwater Governance Project was held in Nairobi. More than 80 Sub-Saharan African experts and stakeholders discussed regional groundwater challenges and how they could be solved by improving Africa's Groundwater Governance. The consultation is part of GEF's Groundwater Governance Project. This project intends to consolidate a Shared Vision on Groundwater Governance and propose a set of globally valid guiding principles that should inform groundwater governance at all levels: the Global Framework for Action.
