The Africa Groundwater Network (AGW-Net) was established to increase awareness of the potential and value of groundwater across the continent and to contribute to capacity building in the groundwater sector in Africa.
The objectives of AGW-Net include building capacity for improved groundwater management at all levels, advocacy for wise and sustainable use and protection of groundwater and integration of groundwater management with surface water. The AGW-Net also acts as a meeting place for the African Groundwater Community, where ideas may be debated, projects and plans shared, jobs and work advertized and partners and friendships formed.
IGRAC and AGW-Net
IGRAC and AGW-Net work together within the Chronicles Consortium and were both involved in the development of the training manual on 'Integration of Groundwater Management into Transboundary Basin Organizations in Africa'.
