The document is a compilation of up-to-date, existing knowledge on groundwater governance, developed by leading international scientists and experts within the framework of the GEF project “Groundwater Governance - A Global Framework of Action”. It covers nine selected themes that focus on different aspects and adopt different angles of view. Some of the themes deal with scientific and technical aspects (groundwater quality and quantity and approaches to their management), others with the governance and policy process in general or with selected aspects of groundwater governance (context, law, institutions, social and economic aspects). In addition, two themes that had been covered by the World Bank were added: one on political economy and the other on climate change. The document, comprising the thematic papers and their synthesis, forms a unique volume of knowledge on groundwater governance, a subject that in similar compiled form is not yet documented elsewhere. Therefore, the Project made an effort to make the information publicly available to those interested in the fascinating subject of groundwater governance.
