CASP support Groundwater Relief in the Horn of Africa
Groundwater Relief, a UK charity, have been contracted by Médecins Sans Frontières – Operational Centre Amsterdam (MSF-OCA) to undertake a desk-based hydrogeological assessment of the Dollo Zone, in the Horn of Africa. The purpose of this work is to assess long term solutions to water scarcity and advocate to other actors and authorities working within the Somali region of Ethiopia, particularly the Dollo Zone, for drought preparedness.
CASP is supporting Groundwater Relief by providing maps and publications on the geology of Ethiopia to assist with the desk study. This support has been a great time saving to the project team, particularly because CASP were able to supply digital resources that hugely benefitted their remote project team.
CASP look forward to future opportunities to assist Groundwater Relief in their humanitarian endeavours.
