The SADC Groundwater Information Portal (SADC-GIP) is a platform for sharing groundwater-related data and information in the SADC region. It includes the maps from the 2010 SADC Hydrogeological Mapping project (SADC-HGM), among others. Organisations and individuals are invited to register and share relevant groundwater data and information in the SADC-GIP. Providing easy access to groundwater data and information is key to allow all stakeholders to actively participate in the sustainable management of groundwater resources in the SADC region.
