ESCWA at the UN-Water Summit on Groundwater

ESCWA at the UN-Water Summit on Groundwater

On 7 and 8 December, ESCWA Executive Secretary Rola Dashti participated in the regional dialogues organized by the Commission on the sidelines of the UN-Water Summit on Groundwater, which shed light on groundwater under the UN Water 2022 campaign “Groundwater: Making the invisible visible".
 
In her address, Dashti stressed that collective commitment is needed to sustainably manage groundwater resources. "Regional coordination provides a critical bridge between the global and national levels, and between countries and communities that share aquifer systems,” she added.
 
The Regional Dialogues were based on the Water Action Decade Regional Preparatory Meetings for the UN 2023 Water Conference to enrich discussions on overcoming challenges and promoting sustainable solutions in groundwater management.
