World Water Day

Every year since 1993, on March 22, World Water Day raises awareness about the importance of clean water and taking action against the global water crisis that leaves 2.2 billion people living without access to safe water.

As climate change impacts increase, and populations grow, there is an urgent need, within and between countries, to unite around protecting and conserving our most precious resource.

This World Water Day, we all need to unite around water and use water for peace, laying the foundations of a more stable and prosperous tomorrow.
