Posted: 2014-02-05

Event date: 22 Mar 2014

The United Nations World Water Day is set for 22 March 2014. This year’s theme is Water and Energy.

The organizers want to raise awareness of the inter-linkages between water and energy, and to contribute to a policy dialogue focusing on the range of issues related to the nexus of water and energy.

The key messages are:

  1. Water requires energy and energy requires water
  2. Supplies are limited and demand is increasing
  3. Saving energy is saving water. Saving water is saving energy
  4. The “bottom billion” urgently needs access to both water and sanitation services, and electricity
  5. Improving water and energy efficiency is imperative as are coordinated, coherent and concerted policies
