Welcome to International Groundwater Resources Assessment Centre

Basic idea and the scope: The World’s groundwater resources are an important key to sustainable development. However, making full benefit from the available groundwater resources and controlling effectively the ubiquitous groundwater-related problems are very demanding tasks. Sharing groundwater information and experience on a world-wide scale 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.

IGRAC portal: This portal is developed for groundwater-related organisations and professionals, as well as for all others who have stakes in groundwater. At this moment the portal contains (among others):

  • A brief overview of IGRAC objectives and activities (read further..)
  • A Global Overview, the first module of Global Groundwater Information System (read further..)
  • An inventory of guidelines and protocols for groundwater assessment and monitoring

This portal is gradually evolving in an interactive, collaborative platform for sharing of groundwater knowledge. To make this happening , IGRAC needs your support and assistance. If you would like to participate in IGRAC activities and/or to be kept informed on IGRAC development you are welcome to contact us.
