The review of aquifer properties data from Africa was conducted as part of a one year DFID-funded research programme, aimed at improving understanding of the impacts of climate change on groundwater resources and local livelihoods – see The review was one of a series of components within the project, which was used to strengthen the evidence base between climate change and aquifer resilience. The overall outputs of the project were: Two hydrogeological case studies in West and East Africa – which assess the storage and availability of groundwater in different aquifers across different climate zones in Africa A water use and livelihood case study (analysis of Water Economy and Livelihoods (WELs) data, Ethiopia) – examining the linkages between water use and household economy A review of hydrogeological data for Africa A map of groundwater resilience to climate change in Africa
