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. For rural areas it is often the safest, most reliable water resources.
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.
RWSN is a member of UN-Water and committed to Sustainable Groundwater Development, as one of our themes having focused for many years on drilling professionalisation, pumping technology and acting as a knowledge broker between groundwater research, policy and practice.
