Groundwater is Africa’s most precious natural resource, providing reliable water supplies to at least a third of the continent’s population. Where it can be found, groundwater has many advantages over river water: it is naturally protected from contamination, able to provide water throughout dry seasons and droughts, and can often be found close to the point of need and therefore developed incrementally and at low cost.
