Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) can be used to improve water security and resilience to droughts. In particular in areas coping with an increase in climate extremes, both in rainfall and in droughts, MAR can be a beneficial technique against climate change. The selection of most suitable MAR interventions may however not be straightforward. The experience is that it can be difficult to assess the full scope of possible interventions that would be suitable within one area. In order to provide an overview of most appropriate techniques and location for MAR interventions in the Merti aquifer, a landscape-based approach has been applied using remote sensing data and GIS analyses.
This poster about the IGAD MAR project was developed for the IAH Congress 2015 in Rome.
