Welcome to the Groundwater and Conjunctive Water Management Hub

Recognizing the importance of groundwater resources and their joint management with surface water and other resources for transboundary water security, this hub gathers and enables exchanges of knowledge and practices within and outside the GEF International Waters (IW) portfolio to enhance IW project effective action towards a comprehensive integration of all water resources.

Conjunctive Water Management is an approach to water resources management in which surface water, groundwater and other components of the water cycle are considered as one single resource, and therefore are managed in closest possible coordination, in order to maximize overall benefits from water and to minimize its potential harmful impacts, both at the short and at the long term.
