National Water Week

World Water Day is observed annually on 22 March and focuses its attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. South Africa will celebrate National Water Week from 18 – 24 March 2019.

The initiative is spearheaded by the United Nations (UN), using the day as a basis for longer-term action involving governments across the globe. The UN aims to ensure that everyone in the world has access to safe water by 2030, while not impacting negatively on the environment.

Each year, the United Nations Water sets a theme for World Water Day which corresponds to a current or future challenge. The theme for 2019 is “Leaving no one behind; Water for All” , and seeks to inform policy and decision-makers, inside and outside the water community, how improvements in water resources management as well as access to water supply and sanitation services, are essential to overcoming poverty and addressing various other social and economic inequities.
