A new IHP Publication: “Conjunctive water management: a powerful contribution to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals” was published in november 2020 by the UNESCO. The publication in pdf is available here.

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 at the short and at the long term. It is essential to address climate change.
