This is a 30 page 2MB document describing objectives, methods, hydrogeological settings and controls, water quality issues and sources of water, and institutional issues. It then describes origins and outcomes of 10 wide ranging case studies. This is a useful entry level resource for practical people considering implementing MAR to secure and augment supplies with all types of water for a range of uses in semi-arid areas.
