World Water Day
March 22, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
World Water Day is observed annually to raise awareness of the vital importance of water to safeguarding and maintaining the planet’s ecosystems. This year’s theme, “Water and Climate Change”, highlights not only the urgent importance of strengthening water securing and establishing access to a sustainable water supply in the face of changing climate conditions worldwide, but also the many ways that shifting atmospheric and oceanic conditions are reshaping the global hydrologic cycle.
Increasing sustainable access to safe drinking water is a key objective and the aim is to provide 15 million people with sustainable access to drinking water services by 2022.
As a result of various initiatives, communities around the world are benefiting from access to improved water and sanitation services, and becoming more resilient in the face of a changing climate.
