World Water Day, designated by the UN on March 22, emphasizes protecting and conserving water resources for future generations.

Since its inception in 1993, World Water Day annually promotes different themes to raise awareness about water-related issues.

The 2024 theme, 'Water for Peace,' highlights the link between water scarcity, pollution, and rising global tensions.

The theme underscores the need for cooperation on water management, as over 3 billion people rely on transboundary water sources.

The UN emphasizes the urgent need for innovative, collective solutions to address water-related challenges, including climate change impacts.

Millions globally lack access to safe drinking water and sanitation, exacerbating poverty, inequality, and environmental degradation.

The global water crisis poses threats to human health, food security, and economic development, needing immediate attention.

Oxfam's study reveals that only a small percentage of major food and agriculture corporations are reducing water use and pollution.

Water conservation is vital for mitigating climate change impacts and ensuring future water security.

Promoting water-saving technologies, efficient irrigation, and sustainable management are key to preserving this essential resource.
