World Water Day 2022

Happy World Water Day!

This year’s topic is “Groundwater – Making the Invisible Visible”.
In conjunction with World Water Day, the United Nations World Water Development Report has been launched (available here). The report provides decision-makers with knowledge and tools to formulate and implement sustainable water policies. It also offers best practices and in-depth analyses to stimulate ideas and actions for better stewardship in the water sector and beyond.
