World Water Day 2022

World Water Day is held annually on 22 March as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.

In 1993, the United Nations General Assembly officially designated March 22 as World Water Day. World Water Day is coordinated by UN-Water in collaboration with governments and partners.

World Water Day 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.

The Sustainable Development Goals, launched in 2015, include a target to ensure everyone has access to safe water by 2030, making water a key issue in the fight to eradicate extreme poverty.

This year’s theme “Groundwater – Making the Invisible Visible” reminds us that we need to work together to sustainably manage this precious resource. As climate change gets worse, groundwater will become more and more critical.

Groundwater may be out of sight, but it must not be out of mind.
