Next week the UN Water conference will kick off in New York, and Ruden Water will be there!

This once-in-a-generation event is a pivotal moment to heighten global attention on water as a defining challenge of the twenty-first century with active cross-sectoral cooperation.

As part of this historical event, Ruden Water and The Ministry of Energy and Water Resources of Somalia will be organising a virtual side event that anyone can attend. We invite you to learn more about the success story of how cross-sectoral collaboration and the support from the Norwegian government enabled the identification of deep groundwater resources in Somalia.

Ruden received funding from the Norwegian Space Center for a feasibility assessment for climate adaptation of low-lying islands – Remote sensing for hydraulic uplift monitoring.

Every year, The Norwegian Spacecenter (Norsk Romsenter) invites organisations to apply for supplementary funds. This year, 25 organisations received funding, and Ruden is one of them.
