Theme, History, and Importance of World Water Day 2022

Being one of the earth’s main components, water is the most basic requirement for life. Without it, all living animals and plants perish.

As a result, “Water is life, ” as the adage goes.” However, like industrialization, overuse, and exploitation of all-natural resources increase, human life is confronted with specific troubling scenarios, such as acute water scarcity. Because water is an essential building component of life, March 22 is designated as World Water Day each year to increase public awareness about the importance of fresh water and the sustainable management of this vital resource. Let us look at the subject, history, and significance of World Water Day for this year.

World Water Day: Topic ‘Groundwater: Making the Invisible Visible’ is the theme proposed by IGRAC for World Water Day 2022. It will be presented on March 21, 2022, at the opening session of the 9th World Water Forum in Dakar, Senegal.

History of World Water Day
World Water Day was officially established by a resolution approved at the United Nations General Assembly meeting on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. The United Nations General Assembly then passed a resolution declaring March 22 to be World Water Day every year beginning 1993.

Since 1993, this day has been observed as an annual event to raise community awareness about the significance of water conservation.
The Importance of World Water Day
Groundwater, which accounts for almost 99 percent of all liquid fresh water on the planet, presents society with many benefits and opportunities. However, scientists claim that massive water depletion and pollution caused by human dangers are now harming the energies and livelihoods of billions of individuals. As a result, in the face of increasing scarcity, the rich groundwater that contributes to the world population’s regular water usage for household purposes can no longer be disregarded.
As a result, every year, this Globe Water Day is promoted internationally by UN agencies to inspire people worldwide by organizing promotional events to motivate people, make them confront vital water concerns, and coordinate with international activities.
The primary objective of this day, according to the United Nations (UN) website, is to “help the accomplishment of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6: water and sanitation for all by 2030.”
