Traditionally, the spread and extent of human settlement beyond the major riparian zones of Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) and across many other arid regions of the world, has been determined by availability of groundwater supplies, accessed through hand-dug wells andsprings.

No cabe duda que los avances son mérito de las organizaciones sociales y la institucionalidad que la acompaña.
