IGRAC highlights 2019

Capacity building was the main IGRAC project activity during the reporting year, also due to a large project on groundwater data collection and management, conducted for the fifteen SADC countries. Globally, groundwater quality assessment received more attention with IGRAC acting as a focal point. Regional,  transboundary groundwater assessment has remained one of the key thematic areas, with a long-term RAMOTSWA project successfully completed. 2019 was also a year of successful building a case for invisible groundwater, also by securing 2022 to be UN year of groundwater.
