To commemorate the United Nations World Water Day, the Austrian Ministry of European and International Affairs and the Austrian Development Agency organized the Austrian Development Cooperation Water Day. At HYDROPHIL, we were privileged to support the organizers and moderated the fully-fledged hybrid event. The Water Day allowed national and international stakeholders to exchange experiences and challenges related to the overall theme of “groundwater – making the invisible visible”. The event was concluded by a panel discussion with representatives from policymaking, implementing, and research institutions.
