The Advanced Center for Water Resources Development and Management (ACWADAM), Pune works in the areas of education, training, capacity building, action research and outreach, on the topic of groundwater management and governance, across India’s diverse aquifer systems through a variety of partnerships. ACWADAM is organizing an international webinar series on Groundwater Governance, with a special focus on India’s unique groundwater situation. There are many ongoing and past efforts to develop, enhance and consolidate the understanding of groundwater governance on the global scale.
This workshop is a small attempt to bring together researchers, practitioners and policy makers from across the globe, representing various geographical settings, to discuss groundwater governance. Our purpose is to view the topic of groundwater governance in the context of various current and emergent themes like climate change and groundwater, eco-systems and groundwater, gender and groundwater, the nexus between food, groundwater and energy and many more. The workshop is planned as a dialogue on various aspects of groundwater governance, keeping in mind the lessons of relevance, particularly to the Indian groundwater situation.
