Kathmandu, Nepal: For different individuals, water has multiple interpretations. The topic of this discussion is what fresh water to us.
What role does water play in our home and family life, our livelihood, our cultural traditions, our health, and our community?
We can better respect fresh water and protect it for all by capturing and praising all of the various ways it helps our existence.
Since 1993, World Water Day has been celebrated on March 22nd each year to highlight the impact of water.
World Water Day honours water while also increasing concern of the 2.2 billion individuals who do not have access to clean drinking water. It’s about implementing steps to fix the world’s water crisis.
Supporting the accomplishment of the Sustainable Development Target of universal water and sanitation by 2030 is a major priority of World Water Day.
The definition for this global day dates back to 1992, when Rio de Janeiro hosted the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development. In the same year, the United Nations General Assembly issued a law declaring March 22nd as World Day for Water, to be celebrated annually beginning in 1993.
Other festivals and activities were added later. For example, the 2013 International Year of Cooperation in the Water Domain and the current International decade for Water for Stable Growth, which runs from 2018 to 2028.
These commemorations aim to reinforce the importance of water and sewage policies in reducing poverty, promoting economic development, and ensuring environmental protection.
World Water Day will be commemorated in a digital celebration on March 22, 2021. The World Water Day commemorates water and enhances awareness about global water shortage, with a primary aim of assisting in the attainment of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6: equitable access to clean water supply and sanitation by coming 2030.
The value of water is the subject of World Water Day 2021. Water has tremendous and complicated importance for our residences, nutrition, community, health, education, commerce, and the sustainability of our natural surroundings, in addition to its value.
We risk screwing up this limited, extremely valuable asset if we neglect any of these principles. SDG 6 is to ensure that everybody has access to clean water and sanitation.
We won’t be able to preserve this vital resource for the good of all until we have a detailed understanding of its real, multifaceted meaning.
The United Nations World Water Development Report, concentrating on the same subject as the movement and promoting policy guidance to policy makers, is also published on the same day.
