Groundwater Exploration and Management in Myanmar and South East Asia

Working with government departments and communities in logistically difficult countries in developing and managing groundwater resources

In this webinar Dr Drury will discuss the on-going hydrogeological assessment work in the Myanmar Eastern Highlands (opposite China, Laos and Thailand). Such work in logistically difficult locations is only possible through strong support by government, military, community groups and non-government organisations.
The groundwater resources of the Dry Zone, central Myanmar has been the focus of an Australian Water Partnership by Len in 2017.
