Our Groundwater: how can we work together to manage it sustainably?

Webinar | Language: English | Via Zoom Platform | 21 March 2022

The proposed webinar, “OUR GROUNDWATER: HOW CAN WE WORK TOGETHER TO MANAGE IT SUSTAINABLY?” aims to contribute to the global conversation, making use of World Water Day (March 22) within the framework of the 2022 theme, “Groundwater – Making the Invisible Visible”.

The UN-Water Overview on “Groundwater Resources” underlines the fundamental roles of groundwater along with weaknesses and needs in connection with the Sustainable Development Goal-6: Clean Water and Sanitation for All. Specifically, UN-Water emphasizes the importance of “Groundwater Resources” through the following key points:


  • Groundwater is invisible, but its impact is visible everywhere.
  • Out of sight, under our feet, groundwater is a hidden treasure that enriches our lives. 
  • Almost all of the liquid freshwater in the world is groundwater.
  • As climate change gets worse, groundwater will become more and more critical. 
  • We need to work together to sustainably manage this precious resource.
  • Groundwater may be out of sight, but it must not be out of mind.
