National contributions have been received from Australia, China, Germany, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Netherlands, South East Asia, Southern Africa, Spain and partial summaries from England, France, India and contributions promised from Italy and USA. Technology contributions have been received for ASR, and are awaited for infiltration basins, river bed modifications and bank filtration. Anyone willing to fill a gap please contact Peter Dillon. National contributors will be listed as coauthors in a summary paper to be published in a journal in 2018.
Leaders: Peter Dillon and Pieter Stuyfzand.

Results to date:
Here are a few example national contributions that summarize MAR development in these countries over a sixty year period from the 1960s to the present. They describe the ways in which MAR is used, the growth in uptake, the methods and sources of water used and the annual volume of MAR undertaken. These are part of a much larger body of work being summarized for subsequent publication in the Hydrogeology Journal as an open access paper supported by UNESCO as a contribution to IHP VIII. Further national/regional contributions will be uploaded here along with a web-link to the paper when published.
