NEWS | ASSAR places the spotlight on water in semi-arid regions

Water accessibility is a key challenge in semi-arid regions. Accessibility is influenced as much by biophysical factors such as rainfall that impact availability, as it is by social and political factors that impact unequal access by some portions of populations. In this fourth edition of Spotlight, ASSAR researchers explore water-related challenges in Africa and India. Challenges are explored from a variety of perspectives, including governance, water use, drought management and international co-ordination. These are early findings, and you contact the researchers directly to find out more.
