Event Details

This event will discuss forthcoming activities for World Water Day 2022 on the theme of ‘Groundwater’ and introduce the 2022 edition of the UN World Water Development Report on the same theme.

Through a multi-stakeholder approach, the World Water Day 2022 campaign on the theme of groundwater will contribute to a raised public, policy and scientific awareness of the opportunities and risks of addressing groundwater in the context of achieving SDG 6.

Groundwater provides almost half of all drinking water worldwide, about 40% of water for irrigated agriculture and about 1/3 of water supply required for industry. It sustains ecosystems, maintains the baseflow of rivers and prevents land subsidence and seawater intrusion. Despite its importance, groundwater is invisible. And out of sight oftentimes also means out of mind.

Through this event that will introduce World Water Day 2022 and the UN World Water Development Report on the theme of groundwater, participants will be able to shape the campaign through suggestions of activities but also get the information and the tools needed to raise awareness of groundwater.
