ESCWA is launching the Regional Dialogues on Groundwater to address priority issues raised by experts and representatives from Arab States during the Arab Regional Preparatory Meeting for the Mid-Term Comprehensive Review of the International Decade of Action for Water.

The Dialogues will cover the following priority issues: 

  • Strengthening groundwater governance, especially for nonrenewable groundwater resources
  • Improving knowledge and information on groundwater systems by enhancing data access and sharing and developing monitoring systems
  • Developing further transboundary aquifer cooperation for the sustainable management of groundwater and water security in the Arab region
  • Building capacity and conducting studies on managed aquifer recharge so it can be included in action plans
  • Undertaking studies on the impact of climate change on groundwater to inform policymakers
  • Monitoring solar powered groundwater pumping to limit over-abstraction.
