Asmara, 14 October 2022- The Ministry of Land, Water and Environment indicated that the exploratory research on surface and ground water resources has significant contribution in the national development programs.

Mr. Semere Berhe, head of Exploration and Information of Water Resource at the Ministry, said that right away after independence strong effort has been exerted to identify surface and ground water resources in the country.
