GROUNDWATER: AN INVISIBLE RESOURCE

Did you know that 99% of liquid freshwater on earth is stored below surface? We call it GROUNDWATER.

This invisible resource provides critical benefits to humankind and ecosystems while surface water is increasingly unpredictable. Groundwater is reliable and contributes to meet the needs of an ever-increasing population.

To unlock the full potential of GROUNDWATER while preserving it for future generations, we need to protect it from pollution and overexploitation and improve our knowledge of subsurface – making the INVISIBLE, VISIBLE.
