The deadline to submit side events is now closed. Thank you to the organizations who summitted a side-event proposal for the Pre-summit day of the UN-Water Summit on Groundwater, taking place on the 6th of December 2022. The Summit Secretariat received a high number of proposals and therefore the selection committee will need more time to consider all the proposals. Organizations having submitted a proposal will be contacted shortly.
