The project addresses concerns over the depletion and degradation of groundwater around the world. These impacts are attributed to a general failure to use groundwater responsibly. The project aims to reverse these trends.
The project aims to raise awareness of the paramount importance of sustainable groundwater resources management in averting the impending water crisis; and
influence political decision making for better stewardship of groundwater resources worldwide.
The project is expected to define a Shared Vision and a Global Framework for Action on Groundwater Governance. These will be derived from:
- An examination of the state of governance in relation to groundwater supply and demand.
- The development of regional groundwater governance diagnostics integrating local and national experiences together with perspectives for management at local, national and transboundary levels.
