Groundwater is an important resource for Malawi’s predominantly rural population. However, provision of potable water to the majority of the country’s population is still a key challenge due, in part, to lack of knowledge of the characteristics of the groundwater, rapid environmental degradation and population increase. These issues are exacerbated by climate change and have consequences on sustainable utilization of groundwater resources. This project will locate new wells to provides clean drinking water to the villagers and build the geoscience capacity of Malawi.
