Open Webinars Today: ‘Groundwater- Making the Invisible Visible’
Groundwater provides almost half of all drinking water worldwide, about 40% of water for irrigated agriculture and about 1/3 of water required for industry. It sustains ecosystems, maintains the baseflow of rivers and prevents land subsidence and seawater intrusion. For many, groundwater is the only source of clean water.
Nevertheless, our groundwater sources are sparsely mapped and poorly managed. It is - as they say- out of sight, out of mind.
Dr. Neno Kukuric, Director IGRAC, International Groundwater Resources Assessment Centre, will dive to the heart of it all: how do we get everybody to talk and think about Groundwater-- by using data, by taking a transboundary view of aquifers, and through collaboration of groundwater researchers and practitioners globally.
