UPGro Consortium Projects

In 2015, five ‘Consortium’ research projects began and concluded in late 2019 or 2020. Four the projects evolved from the UPGro Catalyst projects, but one (T-Group) made the cut when the open call for proposals was assessed. Each of the pages below gives a bit more detail on each project:

Grofutures: Groundwater Futures in Sub-Saharan Africa

Groundwater Futures in Sub-Saharan Africa (GroFutures) will develop the scientific evidence and inclusive groundwater management processes by which groundwater resources can be used sustainably for poverty alleviation in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).

BRAVE: Building understanding of climate variability into planning of groundwater supplies from low storage aquifers in Africa

The BRAVE project will provide an essential ingredient for evidence-based mitigation and adaptation policies in Sub-Saharan Africa. Through working directly with stakeholders through face-to-face meetings and the planned workshops in each country, we aim to develop water demand scenarios to inform the modelling, based on current domestic, agricultural and productive use needs, set within the context of the contemporaneous impacts on, for example, groundwater-based irrigation schemes in the River Volta Basin.
