World Water Day 2024

World Water Day, held on 22 March every year, is an annual United Nations Observance focusing on the importance of freshwater, raising awareness of the 2.2 billion people living without access to safe water. The theme of World Water Day 2024 is ‘Water for Peace’.

Water can be a tool for peace when communities and countries cooperate over this precious shared resource.  

But, water can also spark and intensify conflict when access is denied and usage unfairly shared. 

This World Water Day, we all need to unite around water and use water for peace, laying the foundations of a more stable and prosperous tomorrow.
