    The project “Groundwater Governance: A Global Framework for Action GCP/GLO/277/ GFF” emanated from a request by the Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel (STAP) of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) due to the lack of information on groundwater governance (GWG) and management. The objective of the project was briefly described in the project document as follows: “to influence political decision-making by achieving a significantly increased level of awareness of the paramount importance of s ustainable groundwater resource management in averting the impending water crisis”.

    Thematic studies on groundwater governance 2016

    The document is a compilation of up-to-date, existing knowledge on groundwater governance, developed by leading international scientists and experts within the framework of the GEF project “Groundwater Governance - A Global Framework of Action”. It covers nine selected themes that focus on different aspects and adopt different angles of view. Some of the themes deal with scientific and technical aspects (groundwater quality and quantity and approaches to their management), others with the govern ance and policy process in general or with selected aspects of groundwater governance (context, law, institutions, social and economic aspects). In addition, two themes that had been covered by the World Bank were added: one on political economy and the other on climate change. The document, comprising the thematic papers and their synthesis, forms a unique volume of knowledge on groundwater governance, a subject that in similar compiled form is not yet documented elsewhere. Therefore, the Proje ct made an effort to make the information publicly available to those interested in the fascinating subject of groundwater governance. Additional information is available in the project website: www.groundwatergovernance.org

    Shared global vision for Groundwater Governance 2030 and A Call-for-action 2015
    Also available in:

    This document is one of three outputs of the project GCP/GLO/277/GEF coordinated by FAO and implemented by FAO, UNESCO IHP and the International Association of Hyrogeologists (IAH), in collaboration with the World Bank and GEF STAP. It envisions groundwater governance for suataining the benefits and services inurred from groundwater, to be achieved by the year 20130. The other two outputs of the projects are the "Global Diagnostic on Groundwater Governance " and the "Global Framework for Action to Achieve the Vision on Groundwater Governance". All three outputs are expected to be published under the name of the 5 partners organizations and shared with policy and decision-makers in countries as well as other stakeholders who have been invoved in the project process or are concerned with groundwater governance. They will also be put online under the project website to be accessible to a large public of policy and decision makers across development sectors.
