Sustainable Groundwater Resources in Africa: Water supply and sanitation environment

Yongxin Xu, Eberhard Braune
September 13, 2017

Empowering people, reducing poverty, improving livelihoods and promoting economic growth, while at the ensuring sustainable ecosystems, requires local, appropriate and widely replicable solutions. In the search for these, poor sanitation and poor water supply are major drivers in cycles of...

Groundwater Governance in the Indo-Gangetic and Yellow River Basins: Realities and Challenges

Aditi Mukherji, Karen G. Villholth, Bharat R. Sharma, Jinxia Wang
September 13, 2017

One of the key features of agricultural development in the last five decades has been intensive groundwater use in the Indo-Gangetic Basin (Pakistan, India, Nepal and Bangladesh) and in the Yellow River Basin (China). Groundwater irrigates almost 60% of the net irrigated area in South Asia and 70%...

Environmental Chemicals Desk Reference
