What is the Importance of Water?
Water is one of the most important elements on the planet, and it is necessary for life to exist. Without it, all living creatures and plants would perish.
As a result, the adage goes, "Water is Life."
However, as industrialization, overuse, and exploitation of all-natural resources increases, human life is confronted with certain troubling scenarios, such as acute water scarcity.
Because water is such an important component of life, March 22 is designated as World Water Day each year to increase public awareness about the importance of fresh water and the need for sustainable management of this valuable resource.
Let us have a look at the subject, history, and significance of World Water Day this year.
A resolution passed at the United Nations General Assembly meeting on “Environment and Development”, in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 created World Water Day. Beginning in 1993, the United Nations General Assembly approved a resolution establishing March 22 to be World Water Day every year. The date of March 22nd was set and confirmed. Every year, it is commemorated.
World Water Day is significant because the United Nations is aiming to promote awareness of the value of freshwater in communities all around the world. The United Nations also issues a warning on the worldwide water shortage. On Globe Water Day, people all around the world promote public awareness about the significance of clean water and the necessity for long-term water management.
One of the main goals of World Water Day is to promote the UN's Sustainable Development Goal 6, which is to guarantee that everyone has access to adequate drinking water and sanitation by 2030.
Theme of WORLD WATER DAY-2022
This year's World Water Day topic is "Groundwater: Bringing the Invisible to Light."
Groundwater, which accounts for nearly all liquid freshwater on the planet, presents cultures with a plethora of benefits and opportunities. However, scientists claim that serious water depletion and pollution are now hurting the lives and livelihoods of billions of people as a result of manmade dangers. As a result, in the face of increasing scarcity, the rich groundwater that contributes to the world population's regular usage of water for household purposes can no longer be disregarded.
The importance of groundwater is the focus of the events and programs planned for this day. Many organizations, groups, and leaders urge people to be aware of this finite resource.
