World Water Day 2023


Our bodies are made up of 70% water, so it’s vital that we stay hydrated. Not only does water help increase energy levels and brain utility, but it also aids in skin shape, blood pressure upkeep, and much more. The health benefits of water are virtually endless.

World Water Day is an annual observance on March 22nd that focuses on the importance of fresh water and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. It was designated by the United Nations General Assembly in 1992 to raise awareness about the critical need for access to clean and safe water for everyone.

This day is an opportunity for nations, governments, organizations, communities, and individuals to take action and make a difference in ensuring the sustainable management of freshwater resources. This includes reducing pollution, increasing access to clean water and sanitation, and protecting the rights of people to have access to safe and clean water.

World Water Day is also a day to celebrate the successes and progress that has been made in providing access to clean and safe water, and to recommit to the ongoing work that needs to be done to ensure that everyone, everywhere, has access to this essential resource.

As World Water Day is observed worldwide, the focus is on raising awareness about the importance of water and educating people about the need to conserve it.

People are becoming increasingly conscious of the importance of conserving it. The purpose of World Water Day is to support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal of providing safe drinking water and sanitation to all by 2030. “Making the Invisible Visible” is the subject of this year’s World Water Day, which focuses on groundwater. It focuses on the global significance of groundwater.

One in every three people does not have safe drinking water, and by 2025, half of the world’s population will be living in water-scarce areas.

2.2 billion people will lack safe drinking water if current trends continue.
• 1.9 billion people would lack access to basic handwashing facilities by 2030.

In Africa, water security is a major issue. Only 71% of the population has access to basic drinking water services, leaving 353 million people on the continent without clean drinking water. This means that three out of ten Africans today do not have access to safe drinking water.

In Europe, climate change has affect many countries creating them critical issues with water scarcity. Countries like Slovenia and Croatia experienced terrible issues in the summer of 2022 with water scarcity. Slovenia’s western part was stunned especially hard, having received less than half the amount of rainfall expected for this time of year, furthermore, most of the Mediterranean countries are facing water scarcity problem, the last two decades or so..

As a result of climate change, traditional water sources are also becoming exhausted.
Surface dams are also no longer viable sources of household water due to the volatility of weather patterns and insufficient rainfall.

Nobody wants to imagine a world without the music of rain and waves.
