Groundwater, making the invisible visible.
This 2022, the focus is groundwater, an invisible resource with an impact visible everywhere.
WATER FOR ALL
Sustainable Development Goal 6 is crystal clear: water for all by 2030. By definition, this means leaving no one behind. But today, billions of people are still living without safe water – their households, schools, workplaces, farms and factories struggling to survive and thrive.
World Water Day, 22 March 2021, is about what water means to people, its true value and how we can better protect this vital resource.
THE ANSWER IS IN NATURE
World Water Day, on 22 March every year, is about focusing 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.
World Water Day 2020 is about water and climate change – and how the two are inextricably linked.
Adapting to the water effects of climate change will protect health and save lives.
Using water more efficiently will reduce greenhouse gases.
We cannot afford to wait. Everyone has a role to play.
World Water Day 2017 is about taking action to tackle the water crisis. Today, 1.8 billion people use a source of drinking water contaminated with faeces, putting them at risk of contracting cholera, dysentery, typhoid and polio.
