Mission/Mandate

IAH is essentially the worldwide groundwater organisation. It is a scientific and educational organisation whose aims are to promote research into and understanding of the proper management and protection of groundwater for the common good throughout the world. It was founded in 1956 and has grown, with the increasing social and environmental importance of groundwater, to a membership of more than 3500 members in more than 135 countries. IAH harnesses the research, knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm of its members to promote the professional management of groundwater as part of the integrated management of water resources.

In working towards its mission (below), IAH aims to:

  • Publish Hydrogeology Journal - the official journal of the Association
  • Promote international co-operation among hydrogeologists and others with an interest in groundwater
  • Encourage worldwide application of hydrogeological skills
  • Sponsor international meetings that provide a forum for hydrogeologists to meet
  • Co-operate with other agencies in the UN-system and water-related NGOs.

IAH's mission is to promote the professional management of groundwater as part of the integrated management of water resources (IWRM).
