World Water Day Published: 20.3.2010.  
 


International 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.

An international day to celebrate freshwater was recommended at the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) and the United Nations General Assembly designated 22 March 1993 as the first World Water Day. Since then each year, World Water Day highlights a specific aspect of freshwater.

The theme of this year’s World Water Day, “Clean Water for a Healthy World”, emphasizes that both the quality and the quantity of water resources are at risk. More people die from unsafe water than from all forms of violence, including war.
