WaterAid report: “Groundwater: the world’s neglected defence against climate change”

There is enough groundwater under the continent of Africa for most countries to survive at least five years of drought – and for some, more than 50 years – according to new research by WaterAid and the British Geological Survey. The report – "Groundwater: the world’s neglected defence against climate change" – shows that groundwater, which exists almost everywhere underground, could save hundreds of thousands of lives and be the world’s insurance policy against climate change.
