Bienvenido al Mundo de las Aguas Subterráneas

Bienvenido al Mundo de las Aguas Subterráneas

Los recursos de agua subterránea del mundo son de alta importancia para el desarrollo sostenible. Provechar al máximo los recursos de aguas subterráneas y controlar en forma efectiva los problemas de aguas subterráneas omnipresentes -como tal el uso excesivo y la contaminación- son tareas muy exigentes. El intercambio mundial de información sobre y experiencia de las aguas subterráneas sería de gran ayuda. Esto es lo que IGRAC apoya y promueve.

IGRAC se dedica a la información y la experiencia a cerca de las aguas subterráneas en el sentido más amplio, a escala mundial y sobre una base no comercial.
