The Groundwater Project has partnered with the United Nations on their Water Action Agenda. To see how the project proposes to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations please read our Water Action Agenda Statement.
What is a Water Action Agenda?
This agenda was created and launched during the Dushanbe Conference in June 2022. The Water Action Agenda will be the main result of the upcoming UN 2023 Water Conference. It is a compilation of all the water-related voluntary commitments concerning the second half of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the second portion of the Water Action Decade 2018-2028. These voluntary commitments have been collected leading up to this event and will continue to be collected afterwards. This Action Agenda pushes both Member States and other stakeholders across all sectors, industries, and interests to work together to make their voluntary commitments to address the global water challenges.
The Groundwater Project Water Action Agenda: Capacity Building in Groundwater Education
A large portion of the Groundwater Projects mission is fostering rapid dissemination of knowledge and learning tools, concerning groundwater, to universities everywhere including those in developing countries. There is a strong focus on creating these resources to help combat inadequacy in knowledge and technical resources for improved access to safe drinking water in both remote rural areas and large urban centers where there is water poverty, as well as on understanding and avoidance of contamination of Earth’s groundwater resources.
Groundwater is crucial to the UN Sustainable Development Goal 6 (ensure access to water and sanitation for all) and is the mail goal addressed in the Projects Action Agenda. The Groundwater Projects vision over the next 5 years is to include books and knowledge that address key issues in indigenous communities, developing countries, children’s education and that includes state of the art interactive learning modules to assist in this learning.
