In the framework of the German development cooperation project with BGR "Consultation of the Lake Chad Basin Commission on Groundwater Management" a groundwater training course was held in N'Djamena (Chad) from 31 October to 4 November 2016.

The training concept is based on the training manual "Integration of Groundwater Management into Transboundary Basin Organizations in Africa" ​​and was applied for the first time after its official launch at the African Water Week in Dar es Salaam in July 2016. During the five-day training 25 participants of the Lake Chad Basin Commission learned a multitude of groundwater-relevant topics and formulated recommendations for action for an improved groundwater management in the Lake Chad Basin.
