National Water Week is an awareness campaign by the Department which is a powerful campaign that re-iterates the value of water, the need for sustainable management of this scarce resource and the role water plays in eradicating poverty and under-development in South Africa.

This week creates the opportunity for the Department to teach about water - the importance of it and the role in plays in society, as well as encourage South Africans to read more, learn more, watch videos, download material on water. Access to safe water is a basic human right, and therefore making it important for us to ensure that there is enough for all, forever.

The awareness week will take place from 14 to 22 March 2016 under the theme Water for people, Water by people, which also coincides with World Water Day and National Human Rights Day.

The theme is people centered and was adopted from the International theme for World Water Day 2016.
