- The UPGro project Gro for GooD investigated groundwater risk management for growth and development in Kenya.
- the Africa Groundwater Exploration and Assessment Program is run by the US Geological Survey (USGS) and funded by USAID. The programme aims to build a good understanding of the potential for developing potable groundwater supply in Kenya and Ethiopia, and to build local capacity to plan and carry out the groundwater investigations and monitoring needed for good, sustainable groundwater resource development and management.
One part of this project has been developing groundwater maps for arid regions of Kenya and Ethiopia.
