The GRIPP partnership, led by the International Water Management Institute (IWMI), will strengthenexpand and connect current groundwater initiatives. It will support the Global Framework for Action developed by the Groundwater Governance Project funded by the Global Environment Facility and implemented by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) together with UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Hydrological Programme (UNESCO-IHP), the International Association of Hydrologists and the World Bank. Building on IWMI’s three decades of research, it will embed sustainable groundwater practices at the heart of natural resource management and the SDGs.

Join GRIPP to:

  • advance the agenda of sustainable groundwater management at a local to global scale to achieve the SDGs.
  • be part of a network of partners with critical mass to confront today’s groundwater issues for the benefit of future generations.
  • co-develop, document and disseminate proven technologies, policies, and approaches.
  • provide a platform for attracting, guiding and implementing action research for sustainable groundwater management.

Getting a GRIPP on groundwater

How it works:

Creating long-term partnerships

GRIPP reinforces and expands country-level and international partnerships. It supports national initiatives with capacity building, research, technical support, policy guidance and impact-monitoring activities.

Sharing transferable solutions

GRIPP works with partners to document and disseminate lessons learned from groundwater management. It presents information in simple, easy to access formats for a variety of stakeholders.

Scaling-up successes

Based on solid documentation and rigorous assessments, GRIPP helps countries to replicate and scale-up proven approaches and technologies through long-term engagement.

 Filling knowledge gaps

GRIPP engages with knowledge providers to enhance understanding of critical practical and policy issues, while developing cross-disciplinary capacity, teams and tools.

While working in developing and emerging economies, GRIPP does not have a strict geographic focus or focal countries. IWMI, through their regional offices, have commitment to work with their host countries. However, GRIPP activities will also be governed by partner engagement, particular request from countries, and donor priorities.
