Summary:

Boreholes and tube wells are important adaptation technology measures for providing a domestic water supply during times of water shortages and drought. They extract freshwater from subsurface or deeper groundwater aquifers. The approach can include both creating new boreholes and tube wells (for example as a drought response measure), or deepening or rehabilitating existing ones.
