AGW-Net funding decreases
AGW-Net has been fortunate in the past 2 years to receive funding from BGR and Splash for our short course program and for participation at international meetings. Between these two organization, AGW-Net has received support for almost all our activities to date.
Short courses on groundwater management: EU Splash supported our courses in South Africa (2009) and Togo (2010). BGR supported our courses in Senegal, Ghana and Tanzania (2009) and Ethiopia (2010). In all over 100 groundwater professionals received training in groundwater management and on their behalf AGW-Net wishes express our thanks for this support.
Participation in regional and international meetings. BGR supported attendance at World Water Week (2010) and Africa water Week (2010) of one member of the AGW-net steering committee. EU Splash sponsored one member of the AGW-net steering committee to participate in the EU-Splash meeting in Europe (2010). Our executive members were offered the opportunity to participate in international fora and to meet with colleagues from around the globe.
The AGW-Net manager and steering committee members wish to express their sincere thanks to BGR and EU-Splash for their financial, professional and other support over the past two years. We hope that at some future date you are able to again support our activities.
