|UNESCO’s IHP sessions in Korea|
UNESCO’s International Hydrological Programme (IHP) is celebrating its 50th anniversary with events in Korea. An important pillar of IHP is related to groundwater. As one-third of humanity is totally dependent on groundwater for their daily needs and 98% of the Planet Earth’s easily accessible freshwater is found in aquifers, UNESCO-IHP has devoted huge efforts to raise attention on this vital ‘hidden’ resource and to address the challenges of its governance and sustainable management.
The Programme’s groundwater activities and projects will be presented in events that are highlighted in the following brochures.
