This book is the culmination of extensive surveys of the literature across 15 Sub-Saharan Africa nations that has resulted in country-level reports that have compiled data, maps and information on the groundwater use, challenges faced, existing policies and future steps needed to promote sustainable use of the resource. The chapters within have drawn from those country reports and aim to provide an overview of the groundwater status within these countries and to bring out the major research gaps that exist.
