IGRAC has launched its new website with improved functionality, design and navigation. Apart from these technical improvements, this new website also contains some new sections and updated content. The new website has been developed by IGRAC’s web development partner Proportion Marketing Limited.
Although the previous website still contained very valuable information and resources, a new and improved website was needed to meet today’s requirements. For example, unlike the previous website the new one is fully responsive, which means that the interface changes when visiting the IGRAC website using tablets or mobile phones.
Another major change is the integration of social media, which allows users to easily share interesting content with their network by Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Whatsapp and many other channels. Also the Downloads section has been improved in terms of usability. Users can browse through the available resources, using the search function or the dropdown to either search by topic, resource type or keyword.
Recently, IGRAC has defined its eight main Areas of Expertise, namely Groundwater Assessment, Groundwater Monitoring, Groundwater Governance, Transboundary Groundwaters, MAR, Information & Knowledge Management, Training & Capacity Building, SIDS and Groundwater & Climate Change. Visit the Areas of Expertise section under the ‘Who we are’ tab to find out which activities IGRAC is undertaking in these areas.
Another new section is the ‘What is groundwater?’ page, which explains the groundwater basics. What is an aquifer? What is the role of groundwater within the water cycle? And what percentage of the world’s fresh water is made up by groundwater? All these questions are being answered in this section. Soon, this section will be expanded to cover even more groundwater-related topics.
