In order to promote sustainable management of freshwater resources and raise awareness of the value of freshwater, World Water Day is observed every year on March 22.
Since the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development, where the idea for the celebration was first floated, it has been observed annually. For life to exist, water is a necessary resource. It also plays a critical role in maintaining ecosystems, food security, and human wellbeing.
Water scarcity, however, affects more than 40% of the global population, with over 2.2 billion people lacking access to clean drinking water.
This situation is further aggravated by climate change and unsustainable water use practices, making it imperative to address water-related issues through collective action.
The emphasis of World Water Day this year is on “Valuing Water,” which highlights the inherent worth of water and the necessity of recognizing its various dimensions, including social, cultural, economic, and environmental.
The goal is to promote a more comprehensive approach to water management and foster a wider understanding of the value of water. World Water Day is a chance to promote sustainable water use habits and raise awareness of water-related problems.
Seminars, webinars, campaigns, and competitions are just a few of the events and activities that are held all over the world to motivate people and organizations to act on water conservation.
The occasion offers a forum for participants to share their insights and best practices, to learn from one another, to foster collaborations, and to discuss problems relating to water.
