The UN-Water Summit on Groundwater will be the culmination of the “Groundwater: making the invisible visible” campaign, implemented throughout 2022, coordinated by UNESCO and International Groundwater Resources Assessment Centre (IGRAC), on behalf of UN-Water.

Groundwater is invisible, and yet its impact is visible everywhere. It is a hidden treasure that enriches our lives. Groundwater may be out of sight, but it must not be out of mind.

The UN-Water Summit on Groundwater aims to bring attention to groundwater at the highest international level. The Summit will use the UN World Water Development Report 2022 as a baseline and the SDG 6 Global Acceleration Framework as a guideline to define actions towards more responsible and sustainable use and protection of this vital natural resource. The Summit will unify the statements from all major water-related events in 2021-2022 into one comprehensive groundwater message for the UN Water Conference 2023, to be held in New York in March 2023, with the aim of raising the crucial importance of groundwater.

Registration is free of charge and now open!


The UN-Water Summit on Groundwater will take place on 7 and 8 December 2022 at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, France, and is planned as a hybrid meeting with the most possible on-side presence. Pre-Summit side events will take place on 6 December 2022, the day before the Summit begins.
