Factors Influencing Groundwater Resources In Water Stress Countries
Author: Abdur Rahman

This study is examining the effects of different influencing factors on Groundwater resources in the water stressed countries during the time period 1987-2016 using Panel data econometric techniques namely the Hausman test was conducted to identify the best model between Random effect and fixed effect models. The results show that Precipitation, dam capacity, temperature and frequency of floods have positive and statistically significant impact on Groundwater resources in water stressed countries. Whereas, population and total agriculture area have negative impact on groundwater resources. On the basis of the current study it is recommended that to save the flood water, snow melting water, and surface water by building the dams and reservoir which helps to increase the groundwater recharge. Artificial Aquifers recharge from floods and rainwater can increase the groundwater availability. Supervisor:- Dr. Anwar Hussain
