World Water Day is on 22 March every year. This year’s theme is ‘groundwater’ and draws attention to the hidden water resource that has always been critically important but not fully recognized in sustainable development policymaking. To raise awareness on sustaining groundwater, Elsevier presents a curated list of publicly available journal articles and book chapters. At Elsevier, we are advancing #SDG6 research and ensuring that #groundwater is sustainably explored, analyzed, and monitored
This article demonstrates that, by actively engaging in the interdependent phases of recognizing hybridity, enabling conditions for reflexivity and partnership building, 'inclusivity' tensions can not only be acknowledged but softened and, in some cases, reframed when managing for biodiversity, equity, and justice goals.

Temperature and sea level rise threats to aquaculture were the main focus in science and the news. At least 10 countries linked current impacts on aquaculture to climate change. Global papers cited technology for adaption, while regional papers cited governance.
Links to SDG6 and the theme of WWD as it covers the presence of emerging pollutants in aquatic systems such as rivers, lakes, groundwater, glaciers, wetlands, the ocean poses significant risks to human and environmental health.
This chapter aligns with Goal 14: Life Below Water and Goal 12: Responsible Consumption by discussing threats to the Franciscana dolphin and exploring novel options to reduce harmful bycatch.
This chapter aligns with Goal 14: Life Below Water and Goal 12: Responsible Consumption by highlighting the many marine pollution risks associated with ocean extraction/consumption and impacts to marine ecosystems.
This chapter aligns with Goal 14: Life below water and Goal 15: Life on land by addressing how the pandemic has halted the progress of the sustainable development goals, including how the improper disposal of COVID-19-associated wastes, such as medical equipment, plastics, masks, and gloves, is a threat to both the lives on land and below water.
