Groundwater Solutions Initiative for Policy and Practice (GRIPP) is an independent open global consortium of partners set up to connect, strengthen, expand and connect groundwater-related projects and initiatives.
GRIPP is designed to co-develop solutions to the challenges of groundwater overdraft and water quality degradation. It focuses on the groundwater-dependent, food-producing areas of the world, particularly in low income and emerging economies, where it supports water and food security. Through dynamic partnerships, GRIPP promotes and adapts tested technologies and innovative policy and institutional approaches, in order to achieve the SDGs related to climate resilience, food security, livelihoods and sustainable water management.
