Welcome to the online short course "Sustainable development of groundwater from nature based storage (NBS) for rural multi-purpose water supply", built with the support of NUFFIC. In this course we introduce the theory through recorded lectures and add quizzes and small exercises for personal assessment of progress and understanding. This serves as a basis for more practical field training that is essential to become a specialist in the field!
