BGR was involved in groundwater projects in the Cuvelai-Etosha transboundary basin in the north of Namibia, in cooperation with the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry (DWAF). These ran from 2009 to 2015.

The [https://www.bgr.bund.de/EN/Themen/Wasser/Projekte/laufend/TZ/Namibia/ceb_fb_en.html '''Groundwater for the North of Namibia'''] project provided hydrogeological baseline information to improve understanding of the groundwater potential in the Cuvelai-Etosha basin in this part of Nambia, and introduce groundwater management procedures. It included two reports: one on [https://www.bgr.bund.de/EN/Themen/Wasser/Projekte/laufend/TZ/Namibia/ceb_fb_en.html ''Groundwater for the North of Namibia (CEB), Phase II'']; and one on [https://www.bgr.bund.de/EN/Themen/Zusammenarbeit/TechnZusammenarb/Projekte/Laufend/Afrika/2011_2013-2472-2_Namibia_Grundwassermanagement_en.html?nn=1546392 ''Groundwater Management in the North of Namibia''].
