Welcome to the World of Groundwater

Welcome to the World of Groundwater

The World's groundwater resources are of key importance to sustainable development. Making full benefit from the groundwater resources and controlling effectively the ever-present groundwater problems -such as overuse and pollution- are very demanding tasks. Sharing groundwater information and experience all around the globe would be of great help in this respect. This is what IGRAC supports and promotes. 

IGRAC is dedicated to groundwater information and knowledge in the widest sense, on a world-wide scale and on a non-commercial basis.
