The UN-Water Summit is the culminating event of the 2022 campaign “Groundwater: making the invisible visible”, implemented by the dedicated UN-Water Task Force and co-coordinated by UNESCO and the International Groundwater Resources Assessment Centre (IGRAC), on behalf of UN-Water. The Flyer and the link to the Summit is available.

The Summit will use as baseline the World Water Development Report 2022 (WWDR 2022) focused on Groundwater, and the SDG 6 Global Acceleration Framework as a guideline to define actions towards more responsible and sustainable use and protection of this vital natural resource. The Summit will unify the statements from all major groundwater-related events into one, comprehensive groundwater message for the UN 2023 Water Conference.

Participation is foreseen in hybrid mode, both in presence and remotely. English/French interpretation is foreseen and registration is free of charge.
