Summary

The information gathered by the pumps is now being shared with the Sri Lanka-based International Water Management Institute (IWMI), who is using it to track water usage across different regions around Africa. By giving an accurate picture of how much water is being extracted at any given time, the data could enable governments to develop better policies for water sustainability, such as planning for shifts to less water-intensive crops.
