History of World Water Day
In 1992, at the United Nations Summit on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), the United Nations selected March 22 every year as World Water Day and March 22, 1993 as the first World Water Day on the world. Since then, the World Water Day has been celebrated every year as an operation.
Each year, World Water Day has a theme. For example: 2015 - Water and sustainable development, 2014 - Water and Energy, 2013 - Cooperation for water, 2012 - Water and food security, 2011 - Water for urban development, 2010 – the theme is known that “Clean water for a healthy world”.
The theme for 2021 is "Water and Jobs". This topic was chosen to focus on the role of water in people's jobs and livelihoods.
World Water Day 2021 focuses on celebrating the value of water and raising public awareness of the global water crisis, with a core focus on promoting actions to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Water and sanitation for all by 2030 is sustainable Development (SDG) 6.
The theme of World Water Day 2021 is to emphasize the meaning, importance and value of water resources in terms of economy, culture and society; strengthen effective solutions to protect water sources against the pressure of development activities and climate change. In fact, the value of water is much higher than its price - Water is of immense and complex value to every household, food, culture, health, education, economy and integrity of the natural environment. If we omit any of these values, we run the risk of mismanaging this finite and irreplaceable resource. People will not be able to protect this vital resource for the benefit of all without a comprehensive understanding of the true, multidimensional value of water.
