Groundwater resources are important sources of drinking water in Africa, and they are extremely important in sustaining livelihoods and supporting a diverse range of agricultural and commercial activities. Groundwater has a significant role in improving people’s health in sub-Saharan Africa.

As ABCG evolves into an African-led platform, Ruby will play an essential role in expanding ABCG’s resource portfolios, and building and managing cross-sector partnerships.

We are particularly encouraged by private sector commitments, as well as climate financing, pledged to advance the roles and rights of indigenous peoples and local communities.
