AMCOW Pan-African Groundwater Programme gets underway in Nairobi

Research can only make a difference it is seen and understood by the people who can use it to make a difference. This is why UPGro is delighted to be participating in the new African Ministers’ Council on Water (AMCOW) Pan-African Groundwater Program (APAGP).

Today in Nairobi, is day one of a two-day workshop to discuss and plan how the new program will work and brings together a critical mass of national and international decision-makers and experts, facilitated by Dr Andy Bullock from the UPGro Knowledge Broker Team and Dr Kirsty Upton and Dr Karen Villholth of UPGro, Groundwater for Resilience in Africa Network (GRAN) and GRIPP. There will be inputs from senior UPGro researchers, including Prof. Japhet Kashaigili, Prof. Seifu Kebede, Dr Yahaya Nazoumou, and UPGro Ambassadors from the Africa Groundwater Network, Dr Callist Tindimugaya and Prof. Moustapha Diene.

We are looking forward to find practical ways to support this Pan-African initiative to strengthen sustainable groundwater management and use.
