The main activities
include a photo exhibition, a scientific conference, art programmes and a
meeting celebrating the World Water Day 2017, in addition to other
World Water Day is held annually on 22 March as a means of raising
awareness to the importance of freshwater and advocating for the
sustainable management of freshwater resources.
An international day to celebrate freshwater was recommended at the
1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED).
The United Nations General Assembly responded by designating 22 March
1993 as the first World Water Day.
Each year, World Water Day highlights a specific aspect of
freshwater. This year’s World Water Day will highlight the theme ‘Waste
Water’. Waste water is perceived as a valuable resource in the circular
economy and its safe management is an efficient investment in the health
of humans and ecosystems. Improving waste water management means making
an improvement on all 6 targets of the Sustainable Development Goal on
