Groundwater Solutions Initiative for Policy and Practice.

 

Groundwater use is soaring. It is being used at unprecedented rates for irrigation, industry, and urban development. As surface water supplies dwindle, we are now making withdrawals from our subterranean water bank that cannot be sustained. This is damaging the environment and imperilling food supplies, jobs and health. Yet in some regions, groundwater remains plentiful. If managed sustainably, it has huge potential to boost agricultural production and lift millions out of poverty.

 

Climate change is likely to intensify our dependence on groundwater, so the need for solutions is becoming critical. Without coherent policies, attaining many of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be challenging.

 

“Groundwater Solutions Initiative for Policy and Practice”, led by Karen Villholth (IWMI, Sth Africa) states MAR is one of the integrated elements for groundwater management.
