Global Water Security Issues – Management and techniques for reliable groundwater access
IWRA is hosting a webinar focused on the role of sound groundwater resources management and governance to achieve water security. The theme of this webinar will be management and techniques for reliable groundwater access. Groundwater is an essential water resource globally but one that is more difficult than surface water to quantify and assess. This webinar will help the audience to learn from case studies on options for the assessment and management of groundwater resources in three regions facing water supply challenges.

This webinar will feature presentations by authors of studies that are documented in the third issue of the i-WSSM UNESCO Global Water Security Issues series (https://unesdoc.unesco.org/ark:/48223/pf0000379093?posInSet=1&queryId=773aadb4-8830-4164-b144-3616dd398eb8).

Presentations will cover case studies from small island to national spatial scales in Asia and Australia.
