latest GREEN TALKS LIVE ON GROUNDWATER ALLOCATION: MANAGING GROWING PRESSURES ON QUANTITY AND QUALITY

Groundwater withdrawals have risen sharply in the past 50 years and the resource is becoming increasingly degraded due to pollution and saline intrusion.

On 30 November 2017, Kathleen Dominique of the OECD Environment Directorate discussed the challenges of groundwater allocation and the key questions governments need to answer to establish robust allocation arrangements: how can policies slow depletion, contribute to aquifer recovery and prevent pollution? and how can allocation arrangements be designed to maximise the benefits – economic, environmental and social – derived from groundwater today and in the future?

The talk highlighted findings from the recently released OECD report: Groundwater Allocation: Managing Growing Pressures on Quantity and Quality.
