The climate in the world is intensifying, with more extreme rainfall occurring in shorter periods, alternated by longer and warmer dry periods. This is leading to an increasing occurrence of droughts, with water resources increasingly under pressure. As the largest liquid freshwater reservoir on earth, groundwater has a fundamental role in supporting adaptation in this increasingly water-limited world, and exploitation of groundwater resources has proven an effective buffer to reduce the impacts droughts have. Nature-based solutions and green infrastructure are increasingly being consider as adaptation options. There are, however, many challenges. How can groundwater resources be managed sustainably, particularly when helping society increase resilience to extreme droughts? What is the importance of groundwater dependent ecosystems? How can good governance and policies support a more sustainable management of groundwater in this increasingly water limited world?

In this summer school you will explore the intrinsic links between groundwater and drought, and the potential of groundwater-based solutions, but also how to ensure the sustainable and equitable management and use of groundwater resources to avoid disrupting dependent ecosystems and societies.
