World Water Day 2020World Water Day 2020

World Water Day aims to bring the world's attention to the importance of fresh water.

World Water Day, on 22 March every year, is about taking action to tackle the water crisis. Today, there are over 663 million people living without a safe water supply close to home, spending countless hours queuing or trekking to distant sources, and coping with the health impacts of using contaminated water.

All 193 United Nation member states observe this annual day and this demonstrates the global concern around this topic; the severe waste of water from developed countries and the lack of clean and safe water for third world countries.

The Sustainable Development Goals, launched in 2015, include a target to ensure everyone has access to safe water by 2030, making water a key issue in the fight to eradicate extreme poverty.

In 1993, the United Nations General Assembly officially designated March 22 as World Water Day. World Water Day is coordinated by UN-Water in collaboration with governments and partners.
