Sub-Saharan Africa Water Resources Network

SSAWRN builds on two existing networks—one that emphasizes research and another that promotes postgraduate education. It addresses sub-Saharan Africa’s most pressing water issues, including rising use, declining quality, insufficient research and teaching capacity, inadequate weather stations and the effects of climate change on water supply. The network assigns first priority to research projects that address practical issues and contribute to problem solving. Students are encouraged to share research experience with others and to participate in consultancy work. SSAWRN is working to develop a culture of multidisciplinary problem solving.
