We are pleased to invite you to the UN-Water Summit on Groundwater 7-8 December 2022 at UNESCO HQ in Paris.

The Summit is the culminating event of the 2022 campaign “Groundwater: making the invisible visible”, implemented by the dedicated UN-Water Task Force and co-coordinated by UNESCO and the International Groundwater Resources Assessment Centre (IGRAC), on behalf of UN-Water.

The Summit will use as baseline the World Water Development Report 2022 (WWDR 2022) focused on Groundwater, and the SDG 6 Global Acceleration Framework as a guideline to define actions towards more responsible and sustainable use and protection of this vital natural resource. The Summit will unify the statements from all major groundwater-related events into one, comprehensive groundwater message for the UN 2023 Water Conference.

Participation is foreseen in hybrid mode, both in presence and remotely. English/French interpretation is foreseen and registration is free of charge.

Within the framework of the UN-Water Summit on Groundwater 7-8 December 2022, a call for expressions of interest to hold Pre-Summit side events is now open.

Pre-Summit side events will take place on 6 December 2022 at UNESCO HQ in Paris, France, the day before the Summit begins. All accepted side events will be held on the same premises and advertised on the Summit portal as part of the programme.

These side events are an opportunity to make groundwater visible and contribute to shaping the messages that will be conveyed to the UN 2023 Water Conference in March 2023. Deadline is 15 June 2022.
