An example of project-based groundwater level monitoring comes from a WaterAid project in Burkina Faso, where WaterAid initiated community-based water resource monitoring. More information is in this [[Case Study Community Monitoring Burkina Faso | '''case study on community monitoring in Burkina Faso''']].
