GWP-C Celebrates World Water Day 2016 with the Release of a #WaterandJobs Video Featuring its Partners

The United Nations World Water Day (WWD) is celebrated on March 22nd each year. This year’s (2016) WWD theme is “Water and Jobs.”

In light of the theme, GWP-C saw this as a perfect opportunity to bring focus to the vast amount of jobs that are all related to water within its Network by actively engaging its Partners. Moreover, GWP-C wanted to creatively bring awareness to stakeholders at various levels of the importance of water and how it may be directly or indirectly part of their daily jobs.

To commemorate the Day, GWP-C therefore asked its Partners throughout the Caribbean to explain how their jobs relate to water in less than 60 seconds using their mobile phones.
