World Water Day 2022

The hidden solution

Groundwater is critically important to the healthy functioning of ecosystems, such as wetlands. In deltas and coastal areas, groundwater also ensures the stability of the ground and prevents seawater intrusion under the land.



Protect and preserve

Human activities over-use and pollute groundwater in many places. In others, we don’t know how much water is down there. Groundwater is out of sight, but it mustn’t be out of mind.


A changing world

Groundwater will play a critical role in adapting to climate change, especially drought. We must protect and explore groundwater, balancing the needs of people and the planet.  #WorldWaterDay   Climate change is being felt through water. In some places, there is too much water; in others, too little. In the driest parts of the world, groundwater may be the only water people have.
