Welcome to the Homepage of the SADC Groundwater Management Institute

The purpose of this site is to introduce ourselves to you, inform you of what we do, let you know how you can get involved in the activities of the SADC-GMI and share our resources with you. We are a new organisation, so you might want to keep an eye on us as we grow.

The stories in this book aim to convey the importance of groundwater and interventions implemented by the SADC-GMI from the period 2016-2020. We aim to capture a wide readership – non-specialists as well as the general water resources management stakeholders.

We will also talk about the journey of bringing leading experts from SADC and across the globe together at the SADC Annual Groundwater Conference to share knowledge, new discoveries, challenges and accomplishments, and to strategise about the future of groundwater in the region.

We hope you enjoy these stories and we look forward to the next five years of SADC-GMI as we continue to pave the way for groundwater and ensure sustainable, clean, drinking water and sanitation for all of SADC’s citizens.
