Unlocking the Potential of Groundwater for the Poor (UPGro), is an international research programme funded by UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). It focuses on improving the evidence base around groundwater availability and management in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) to enable developing countries and partners in SSA to use groundwater in a sustainable way in order to benefit the poor.

There are 5 ‘consortium’ projects as part of UpGRO, one of which is Hidden Crisis. To find out much more about the other ‘consortium’ projects and much more on UpGRO then visit the UpGRO website.
