Millions of people in Myanmar suffer from annual water shortages. During the 2018 dry season, an estimated 24,400 villagers in Mon state suffered from water scarcity. Currently, only 69% of households have access to improved drinking water as their main source. This project aimed toward improving water security in rural Mon state by enabling engineers, students, and researchers to use electrical geophysical methods to locate sustainable water supplies. By featuring a Trainer-of-Trainers (TOT) capacity-building model and a global, multidisciplinary consortium of government, university, and industry partners, this project worked toward sustainably to alleviate water scarcity and improve livelihoods.
