World Water Day is March 22 coordinated by UN-Water in collaboration with governments and partners.
In 1993, the United Nations General Assembly officially designated March 22 as World Water Day.
The Sustainable Development Goals, launched in 2015, include a target to ensure everyone has access to safe water by 2030, making water a key issue in the fight to eradicate extreme poverty.

Find out more about this year’s theme: wastewater.
Instead of wasting wastewater, we need to reduce and reuse it. By using this valuable resource, we will make the water cycle work better for every living thing and we help achieve the Sustainable Development Goal 6 target to halve the proportion of untreated wastewater and increase water recycling and safe reuse.
