World Water Day 2015 - 'Water and Sustainable Development'

This is a past event

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.

World Water Day is marked on 22 March every year. It’s a day to celebrate water. It’s a day to make a difference for the members of the global population who suffer from water related issues. It’s a day to prepare for how we manage water in the future. In 1993, the United Nations General Assembly designated 22 March as the first World Water Day. 22 years later, World Water Day is celebrated around the world shining the spotlight on a different issue every year. Many organizations and groups are preparing events and activities related to this day. The official UN-Water event will be held in New Delhi, India on Friday 20 March.

In 2015, the theme for World Water Day is 'Water and Sustainable Development'. This theme encourages thinking around how water links to all areas we need to consider to create the future we want. Each year, UN-Water provides resources to inspire celebrations for World Water Day.
