- Groundwater Futures in Urban Africa
Across much of tropical Africa there is a rising proliferation of privately-commissioned boreholes for domestic water supply. This new form of mass water provision is opening up challenging questions for the resilience of communities and surrounding ecosystems, their vulnerability to natural or anthropogenic hazards and distributional equity, particularly for the urban poor. Focusing on urban centres, this half-day interdisciplinary seminar will explore the implications of this trend for groundwater resources, dependent social and environmental systems and consider emerging research agendas.
