The Country Water Partnership (CWP) Senegal received a grant from the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) for the establishment of an advisory group, and the development, management and hosting of two e-learning courses on two topics namely “groundwater resources management” and “professional borehole management”.

The objectives of the initiative are:

  • Raising awareness of the importance of professional development in relation to groundwater management and professional drilling, among key stakeholders in the water sector and education.
