March 22, International World Water Day

International World Water Day is held annually on 22 March as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. The United Nations General Assembly designated 22 March 1993 as the first World Water Day. Each year, World Water Day highlights a specific aspect of freshwater.

The 2013 theme for World Water Day is "Cooperation Around Water" and is coordinated by UNESCO in collaboration with UNECE and UNDESA on behalf of UN-Water. The UN designated 2013 as the International Year of Water Cooperation.

Water Has No Substitute; Share It WiselyThe National Geographic Society’s freshwater initiative is a multi-year global effort to inspire and empower individuals and communities to conserve freshwater and preserve the extraordinary diversity of life that rivers, lakes, and wetlands sustain.
