World Water Day


Did you know that 1 billion people around the world lack access to improved water supply?  That is why the United Nations General Assembly designated March 22 as World Water Day.  This year will be the 17th annual observance of this day.

In 2009, the theme for World Water Day is “Shared Water – Shared Opportunities”. Special focus will be placed on transboundary waters. Nurturing the opportunities for cooperation in transboundary water management can help build mutual respect, understanding and trust among countries and promote peace, security and sustainable economic growth.

You can help make a difference by joining an event in your area or becoming a water advocate.
