The UN-Water Summit on Groundwater 2022 will be the culmination of the ‘Groundwater: Making the Invisible Visible’ campaign, implemented throughout 2022 and coordinated by the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and International Groundwater Resources Assessment Centre (IGRAC), on behalf of UN-Water. IGRAC is a UNESCO center that works under auspices of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and is supported by the Government of the Netherlands.
The Summit aims to bring attention to groundwater at the highest international level. It will use the UN World Water Development Report 2022 as a baseline and the SDG 6 (clean water and sanitation) Global Acceleration Framework as a guideline to define actions towards more responsible and sustainable water use and protection. The Summit will unify the statements from all major water-related events in 2021-2022 into one comprehensive groundwater message for the UN 2023 Water Conference.
