About this book

This volume disseminates research investigations for achieving sustainable groundwater supplies in challenging local community environments across the African continent. It explores the search for integrated water, sanitation, hygiene delivery and best implementation practice.

Through a variety of case studies, it illustrates the current status and pitfalls that hydrogeologists experience and highlights the relevant challenges that especially Sub-Saharan Africa still faces in this battle.
