Alice Aureli has a Ph.D. in Hydrogeology and has worked in the UNESCO Water Sciences Division since 1989. She is the Chief of the Groundwater Resources and Aquifer Systems Section of UNESCO's International Hydrological Programme. She is responsible for, among others, the Internationally Shared Aquifer Resource Management program. This role has led her to supervise the work of the interdisciplinary group that advised the UN International Law Commission to prepare the Draft Articles on the Law of Transboundary Aquifers. An important aspect of her work has been on scientific and policy-related issues surrounding groundwater governance. Aureli is the author of a large number of publications and has also served as editor of various international journals.
