The World Water Day is a United Nations observed day, marked on 22 March annually, since 1993. The day seeks to drawn global attention and awareness to global water crisis and promote solutions in a bid to address the concern. It is also a core concern as it supports the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6: water and sanitation for all by 2030.
This year, the global World Water Day will be marked, guided by the theme ‘Valuing Water’. The scope will go beyond issues of pricing of this vital multidimensional resource to include the environmental, social, and cultural value people place on water. This is key since water has enormous and complex value for our households, food, culture, health, education, economics and the integrity of our natural environment.
On 22 March, 2021, World Water Day will be celebrated in an online event. The United Nations World Water Development Report will be also launched including recommendations of policy direction to decision makers.
