About us

This portal is brought to you by the Friends of Groundwater (FoG). FoG is a group of experts in groundwater quality that are engaged in the World Water Quality Alliance (WWQA) lead by the United Nations Environment Programme, with the objective of improving the global knowledge base on groundwater quality.

The WWQA is a voluntary and flexible global multi-stakeholders network that advocates the central role of freshwater quality in achieving prosperity and sustainability. The WWQA explores and communicates water quality risks in global, regional, national and local contexts, pointing towards solutions for maintaining and restoring ecosystem and human health and well-being. Moreover, it provides a participatory platform for water quality assessments addressing priority topics relevant to water governance, scalable water solutions and emerging issues in water management.
