March 22 is World Water Day

World Water Day is observed March 22  every year to focus attention on the importance of water. The theme for World Water Day 2018 is “Nature for Water”  exploring nature-based solutions to the water challenges we face in the 21st century.

In different parts of the world today, events will be undertaken in variety of events.   The day is used to advocate  for  sustainable management of  freshwater resources.

One in ten – that’s 663 million people globally – lack access to clean water.

Damaged ecosystems affect the quantity and quality of water available for human consumption. Today, 2.1 billion people live without safe drinking water at home; affecting their health, education and livelihoods.

The first World Water Day, designated by the United Nations was commemorated in 1993.

 

 

 

As  World Water Day is observed today, may   we  all recognise the vital – and largely underappreciated  role that  water has in our lives.
