Since 1993, the United Nations (UN) celebrates World Water Day every year on March 22nd. It is a special occasion to highlight the fundamental importance of water resources and their sustainable use around the globe. This year’s dedicated theme “Water for people and cooperation partnership” is about accelerating change to solve the water and sanitation crisis in the world. Through a series of events, the UN seeks to engage hundreds of thousands of people, among decision-makers, scientists, practitioners, and civil society to find joint solutions to one of the most world´s crucial problems for sustainable development.

Since 2017, the International Water Resources Association (IWRA) celebrates World Water Day with a series of activities that seek to raise awareness on the use of water resources, and its sustainable management, in all regions of the world, including Africa, Asia, Europe, the MENA region and the Americas.
