World Water Day 2013
March 22, 2013 – Worldwide!
2013 is the UN International Year of Water. Just 20 years ago in 1993, the UN Conference on Environment & Development (UNCED) first designated March 22nd as World Water Day to “focus attention on the importance of fresh water, and advocate for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.” Every year since then, a different theme is hi-lighted throughout the celebration.
