Amos Agossou is a PhD candidate in the school of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Kookmin University, Seoul, South Korea. His is doing his PhD with Lee Jae-Boem under the supervision of Prof. Jeong-Seok Yang. His research is the impact of climate change on groundwater storage in mountainous area.
The study presented at EGU concerns groundwater recharge restoration in urban area using LID/BMP: Study case of Benin, West Africa. The study has developed a tool for dimensioning Low Impact Development facilities for groundwater recharge restoration in the township of Abomey-Calavi, Benin. The tool is first used to estimate the pre and post-development (for any project developed in the concerned area where impervious area increased and consequently decreasing groundwater recharge) recharge, and after estimating the recharge deficit, the difference is used for the LID dimensioning. The tool developed can be used by anyone without a prior knowledge in groundwater recharge estimation, and, the important input parameter to be modified by the user are the impervious area and the area associated to each land use in the database of the tool.
