About World Water Day

In 1992, the United Nations declared an international day to celebrate freshwater. World Water Day is held every year on March 22nd. It is a worldwide event intended to create awareness about the importance of freshwater and freshwater resources and sustainability.

Each year World Water Day focuses on a specific aspect of freshwater. This year, in 2016, the theme for World Water Day is ‘Better Water, Better Jobs’. It;s focusing on how enough quantity and quality of water can change workers’ lives and livelihoods – and even transform societies and economies.
