How to obtain the documents developed under the project?.
The project focused on capacity building at MRRD and for the water sector in Afghanistan. All key technical documents relevant to groundwater mapping for this project is available here on the web for downloading. Of this is difficult with some of the larger files ( and slow Internet) then Norplan or MRRD/ RuWatSIP will provide you with a DVD copy. Illustrated reports, the Water Atlas for Faryab and training videos may be better to obtain on the DVD because of file size.
