World Water Day

Every year on March 22 the world celebrates and focuses its attention on water! In 2018, the theme of the day was “Nature for Water,” and the day was dedicated to exploring nature-based solutions to the water challenges of the 21st century.

In 2019, World Water Day will be “Leaving No One Behind,” and will be focused on refugees and human rights. This year, people and organizations will be encouraged to consider why people have been left behind when it comes to access to water and sanitation, and to think about how sustainable water management could change that.

Leaving No One Behind also places attention on the elderly, disabled, marginalized, and poor who lack access to clean water and proper sanitation.

Among other activities that will take place on March 22, the United Nations World Water Development Report will be published. The report will coincide with the theme of the day.
