When we think of freshwater – that precious 3% of earth’s water – we usually picture flowing rivers and rippling lakes. The reality, however, is that most freshwater lies deep underfoot in large aquifers. But without obvious visual cues, groundwater often goes unmeasured and unmanaged, leaving those dependent on the resource to support livelihoods, agriculture, ecosystem health, and industrial growth vulnerable. This session will present concrete examples of groundwater management in different contexts and results when groundwater is well managed and when not.
