Project Description:

The global environment objective (GEO) of the project is to accelerate improved groundwater resource governance at transboundary, national, and local levels. The project development objective (PDO) is to sustain livelihoods reliant upon groundwater and related aquifer services.

PROJECT FOCUS
The primary focus of the project is the set of human behaviours that determine groundwater use and abuse. The objective is to accelerate the adoption of improved groundwater resource governance from resource management institutions to millions of individual users.

EXPECTED OUTPUTS
The project is expected to define a Shared Vision and Global Framework for Action on Groundwater Governance.These will be derived from:

  • An examination of the state of governance in relation to groundwater supply and demand.

  • The development of regional groundwater governance diagnostics integrating local and national experiences together with perspectives for management at local, national and transboundary levels.


A series of communication tools will be developed to promote the adoption of the Global Framework for Action.
