December 2006 -The Sahara and Sahel Observatory (OSS) received a €487,000 grant to finance the GEO-AQUIFER knowledge improvement and the Northern Sahara Aquifer System (SASS) Project. The project seeks to establish an information and knowledge base to support sustainable transboundary management of underground water resources of the northern Sahara aquifer at national and infra-regional levels. This should help improve the living conditions of the population through the enhancement of knowledge and the sustainable management of transboundary groundwater resources through the use of satellite data, in view of increasing concerted action among Algeria, Libya and Tunisia. The project is executed with the assistance of the European Space Agency.
