What is the gloabal water crisis? Many important global organizations have concluded that there is a global freshwater crisis. In the past few years both the UN and UNESCO have convened major conferences on the crisis. The freshwater crisis is exacerbated by global warming, yet, in the short term, water scarcity with impacts on food and poverty are the most immediate threat to civilization.

2.1 billion people live without safe water (United Nations, 2019)

Why is Groundwater Critical to Solving the Global Water Crisis? The global water crisis is in fact a groundwater crisis because groundwater makes up 99% of all liquid fresh water and in times of drought, groundwater is the only freshwater available in many regions. Yet much of the educational material needed to solve the crisis exists behind expensive paywalls and global university programs are at present inadequate to address the issue.

Our Mission: Commitment to advancement of groundwater education through creation and provision of free, high-quality materials for all readership levels under all global circumstances to serve humanity and our planet’s ecology. Over 1000 volunteer experts from around the globe aim to raise groundwater consciousness and strengthen groundwater expertise by making groundwater knowledge accessible for everyone everywhere.
Collection of educational book covers from The Groundwater Project, featuring topics such as groundwater in our water cycle, groundwater-surface water exchange, and hydrogeologic properties of earth materials
