Groundwater is a vital natural resource, being increasingly under pressure of climate change and human activities. We need to monitor the invisible groundwater in order to use and protect it properly.
The report 'National groundwater monitoring programmes - A global overview of quantitative groundwater monitoring networks' provides an overview of quantitative groundwater monitoring networks at national scale. It is prepared to encourage sharing of monitoring experience, assist in improvement of monitoring and data processing and increase awareness of a general lack of groundwater monitoring.
This regional overview for The Americas consists of the country profiles from this region.
