This natural resource is often poorly understood, and consequently, undervalued, mismanaged and even abused, the international agency warned, after publishing a report on the occasion of 2022 World Water Day on Tuesday, March 22.

According to UNESCO, the vast potential of groundwater and the need to manage it sustainably can no longer be overlooked by the international community.

The report, entitled “Groundwater: Making the invisible visible,” seeks to draw attention to this valuable resource, which is fundamental to responding adequately and effectively to current and future water crises.

In this regard, UNESCO called on the States to implement management and governance policies in the face of a global challenge that cannot be postponed.

The UN agency pointed out that groundwater presently provides half of the volume withdrawn for domestic use by the global population.
