    This Framework for Action has been prepared to achieve the goals of the Shared Global Vision for Groundwater Governance 2030. It describes the main steps to be taken and is an urgent call for action to all who can make a difference: national and local governments, international organizations, the private sector, civil society, media, educational institutes and professional organizations — but also to well owners, groundwater users and concerned citizens everywhere.

    Groundwater development and use have proceeded rapidly in recent years, often outside of governance frameworks. As a result, unrestricted pumping and pollution have led to threats to the sustainability of aquifers, and the allocation and use of groundwater have often been poorly aligned with society’s goals for equity, sustainability and efficiency. Hence, awareness has arisen in many countries of the need to improve groundwater governance.The GEF Groundwater Governance Project has been undertak en to raise awareness amongst groundwater stakeholders, lay the foundations for governance responses, and catalyse action. The GEF Project was carried out by FAO, UNESCO, the World Bank and IAH, with inputs from a large number of groundwater professionals from all continents.

    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”.
