Gerald Lacey memorial lecture 2015: Why groundwater matters, London

Watch this event

The 2015 Gerald Lacey Memorial Lecture will be given by Dr. Frank van Steenbergen, who will be presenting on the topic of groundwater and shallow aquifer systems.

Groundwater resources provide an important mechanism for balancing the supply of water to meet local needs. The consequences of mining groundwater resources for immediate benefit are well known; however, across large tracts of Africa for instance groundwater provides a significant source, available for those that understand how to abstract it.

Based on practical cases the lecture make the point of understanding groundwater and aquifers better – sustenance of many agricultural economies, part of the productive water cycle, part of the landscape - and argues that new approaches in managing and making use of groundwater are possible.
