GEF IW:LEARN Dialogue on Conjunctive Management of Surface and Groundwater

16-17 October 2023, GENEVA & online
Global workshop on Conjunctive Management of Surface and Groundwater: National to Transboundary level on 16 -17 October 2023, GENEVA and online

With the aim to increase our understanding of the importance, needs and benefits of conjunctive water management in national and transboundary contexts, this workshop provided the opportunity to share good practices and lessons learned, setting the basis for cooperative approaches within a transboundary setting.

As part of the workshop, GEF IW:LEARN and UNESCO-IHP organized a global dialogue featuring GEF International Water (IW) projects which already address conjunctive management within their project design, or aim to link standalone groundwater projects with their river basin partners. GEF IW:LEARN launched the recently updated Groundwater and Conjunctive Water Management Hub, as the plaftorm for exchanging information and resources of the community of practice. The workshop also helped enhance the capacities of the GEF system in groundwater issues on topics related to data management, monitoring and isotope hydrology techniques etc. drawing on partner contributions.
