Watch northern India’s groundwater disappear in 30 seconds!
This 30-second visualization by NASA shows how India’s groundwater supplies declined between 2002 and 2008. And in this video, scientist Matt Rodell explains the science that the dramatic-looking visualization is based on.
Abstracting, using and managing groundwater are mainly local activities, responding to local needs and informed by local knowledge. However, studying it from a global perspective is essential to managing it effectively.
In TheWaterChannel webinar on October 25 (‘Groundwater in a Global Perspective...’), hydrologist Jac van der Gun will explain this connection. And why this is key to the challenges that lie ahead of water users, managers and policymakers. Jac is part of the core team that will draft a Vision and Framework for Action on Groundwater Governance (www.groundwatergovernance.org) over the next six months.
The webinar is free to attend and open to all. For more info on Jac, the topic, local timings and how to attend, visit www.TheWaterChannel.tv/Webinar
