Groundwater governance: A global framework for action (2011-2014) - Regional diagnosis for the Sub-Saharan Africa Region
Expanded Title:The Groundwater Governance - A Global Framework for Action (2011-2014) is a joint project supported by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and implemented by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO), jointly with UNESCO's International Hydrological Programme (UNESCO-IHP), the International Association of Hydrologists (IAH) and the World Bank. The project is designed to raise awareness of the importance of groundwater resources for many regions of the world, and identify and promote best practices in groundwater governance as a way to achieve the sustainable management of groundwater resources. As a final result, the project will develop a global "Framework of Action", consisting of a set of effective governance tools: guidelines for policies, legislation, regulations and customary practices. The first phase of the project consists of a review of the global situation of groundwater governance and aims to develop of a Global Groundwater Diagnostic that integrates regional and country experiences with prospects for the future.
