Groundwater Relief provides specialist groundwater support to the humanitarian sector. The support is delivered through staff and a global membership of over 230 groundwater experts.
Over the course of the last 5 years Groundwater Relief has undertaken over 80 projects in Africa, Latin America and Asia. This work has included groundwater exploration and resource assessments, drilling supervision, setting up groundwater monitoring schemes, capacity building and training local organisations.
Our mission is to prevent and relieve poverty and sickness and promote the good health of people anywhere in the world by developing their and their water providers capacity to sustainably use and develop groundwater resources.
Groundwater has a critical role to play in the battle to eradicate poverty. Groundwater can be more reliable and a better quality source of water than surface water, however it is also more difficult to access, understand and manage sustainably.
A lack of expertise can lead to poorly sited and constructed water points, environmental damage, non-functioning infrastructure and broken promises.
Groundwater Relief provides a unique service through its membership’s broad range of skills and connections. Our members come from over 25 different countries, speak 33 different languages and include hydrogeologists, geophysicists, geochemists, groundwater engineers, drillers, groundwater modellers and GIS technicians.
