Sustainable Groundwater Development

The sustainable use of groundwater is of paramount importance together with a societal challenge. It is widely recognized that groundwater sustainability is a driven process of intra- and inter-generational equity that balances the environment, society, and economy. However, achieving this sustainability is a challenging task nowadays due to human intervention. Over-pumping with limited insights into groundwater systems, inappropriate planning of wells, weak protection and management policies could result in severe environmental impacts and dramatic water table depletion in many regions.

With the presence of experts from Afghanistan, France, Kazakhstan, Taiwan, Thailand, Russia, and Vietnam, this workshop is aimed to provide an overall understanding of issues and challenges of groundwater management as well as review recent strategies and initiatives towards improved groundwater management beyond.
