December 2023

From the Director: Looking back on IGRAC’s 2023

Already here, last days of the year, trying to tick all the pending boxes on my to-do list… and the moment to look into the rear-view mirror. For IGRAC, this has been a challenging, but exciting year. If I have to choose two words to describe it, this would be “change” and “new”. The year 2023 has, for IGRAC, been an adventure, a jump into a new phase that promises a lot. In 2023, we opened and paved the way for the next years.

Next step on road map towards groundwater monitoring network in Guyana

In 2017, the Hydrometeorological Service of Guyana (Hydromet) reinstated a dedicated Groundwater Section, after it had been inactive for about 20 years. To assist Hydromet in this process, WMO and IGRAC joined the initiative to design a roadmap for the strengthening of groundwater monitoring in Guyana. The next dot on this roadmap towards a fully functional groundwater monitoring network was a stakeholder consultation, which took place from 27 November to the 1st of December.
