About the event

World Water Day is held annually to highlight the importance of freshwater and importance of sustainable management of freshwater resources. It dates back to the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) which recommended it as an important reminder to the world. The United Nations General Assembly then designated 22 March 1993 as the first World
Water Day.
