This High-level Expert Consultation Meeting on Groundwater Governance, hosted by UNESCO, will take place on 3-4 February 2015. The invited experts will contribute to the preparation of the final products of the Groundwater Governance Project:
- the Global Diagnostic on Groundwater Governance,
- the Shared Vision on Groundwater Governance, and
- the Global Framework for Action on Groundwater Governance.
The project “Groundwater Governance: A Global Framework for Action” is financed by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and jointly executed by UNESCO’s International Hydrological Programme (IHP), the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH) and the World Bank.

The project's goal is to highlight the urgent need for improved governance of groundwater resources and to identify and promote globally valid principles for the governance of these resources at different levels.
