Groundwater resources and their long-term replenishment are controlled by long-term climate conditions. Climate change will therefore have a great impact on groundwater resources.
Groundwater has to be used and managed in a sustainable way in order to maintain its buffer and contingency supply capabilities as well as adequate water quality for human consumption, also under predicted climate changes.
1st objective is to support decision makers in setting priorities for technical as well as institutional interventions to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Partners may be governmental development agencies, non-governmental organisations, partner countries and international partners in development cooperation, and other third parties.
