UNESCO International Hydrological Programme (UNESCO-IHP) is organizing the Steering Committee Meeting of the Groundwater Resources Assessment under the Pressures of Humanity and Climate Change Network (GRAPHIC) to be held on 29 May 2015 at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, France.

GRAPHIC is a platform for the exchange of knowledge between groundwater scientists, resource managers, and policy makers aiming at promoting and advancing sustainable groundwater management considering projected climate change and linked human effects.
The meeting aims at reviewing GRAPHIC past activities and discuss GRAPHIC Strategic Plan for upcoming activities (workplan, programme, fundraising strategy). The meeting will also be devoted to present and discuss innovative water resources evaluation (surface water, groundwater, glaciers) for water management decisions and policies through the application of satellites observations (NASA Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment – GRACE).

The GRAPHIC Steering Committee Meeting will also allow the preparation of GRAPHIC involvement during the 21st Session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21/CMP11).
