First Regional Meeting, October 2013
The Governments of Botswana, Namibia and South Africa, jointly with the UNESCO International Hydrological Programme (UNESCO-IHP) and the International Groundwater Resources Assessment Centre (IGRAC) organized a first regional meeting from 22-24 October 2013 at the United Nations House in Windhoek, Namibia on the assessment of the transboundary Stampriet Aquifer.
The main objective of the first regional meeting was to formally launch the project and update all parties on the progress of the project’s implementation. During the first day of the meeting, a series of presentations and discussions took place to ensure that all parties are familiar with the objectives, activities, budget, deliverables and approach to the implementation of the project. The second and third day of the meeting were more technically oriented and focused on gathering participants to discuss details related to the assessment, such as methodology and indicators.
