Quantitative maps of groundwater resources in Africa

New research funded by UK aid has uncovered huge stores of groundwater in Africa – a vital resource that could give millions of people across the continent access to safe drinking water.

Across Africa over 300 million people don't have access to safe drinking water. But today's findings show the volume of water available underground is 100 times the amount found on the surface – water which could be tapped to meet the need.
