Governance and planning

Our contributions to World Water Day 2022, and our own ‘year for groundwater’ included publicity events in Africa, support for attendance of two IAH delegates from Sub-Saharan Africa at the World Water Forum in Dakar. At the Groundwater Summit in Paris, IAH hosted a session on ‘Innovation and groundwater’ and a side event on how groundwater changes lives.

The concerns and wider aspirations of IAH leading to 2030 are enshrined in the São Paulo-Brussels Groundwater (BraBel) Declaration. Actions based on the results of a members survey are set out under our new strategic plan, to take us to 2030:

  • Active involvement of members, diversity and inclusion
  • Education and career development
  • Outreach and influencing global policy
  • Communications
  • Member benefits
  • Congresses and conferences
  • Publications
