Groundwater - making the invisible, visible

The theme of World Water Day 2022 is groundwater and Aquafed fully supports the work of UN agencies and partners to highlight this essential and precious resource that often goes unnoticed.

Out of sight, under our feet, groundwater is a hidden treasure that enriches our lives. In the driest parts of the world, it may be the only water people have.

Almost all of the liquid freshwater in the world is groundwater, supporting drinking water supplies, sanitation systems, farming, industry and ecosystems.

In many places, human activities over-use and pollute groundwater. In other places, we simply do not know how much water is down there.

Groundwater will play a critical role in adapting to climate change. We need to work together to sustainably manage this precious resource.

Groundwater may be out of sight, but it must not be out of mind – hence we need to make the invisible, visible.
