This brochure was developed and designed by IGRAC as part of its services delivered to the SADC Groundwater Management Institute (SADC-GMI) in 2017. These services mainly included the development of the SADC Groundwater Information Portal.
The SADC Groundwater Information Portal (SADC-GIP) is a map-based information system providing access to the harmonised SADC Hydrogeological Map and Atlas as well as other relevant groundwater-related maps like the WHYMAP Global Groundwater Vulnerability Map to Floods and Droughts and IGRAC's Map of Transboundary Aquifers of the World. The SADC-GIP is set up as a service to professionals, scientists and other stakeholders in SADC member states who are involved in groundwater management, groundwater development and research on groundwater or related fields. Users can browse maps and underlying data online and can create overlays of different maps to create new insights.
