Why does the observance day take place?

In 1992, during the UN Conference on Environment and Development (held in Rio de Janeiro) the day was proposed to recognise the need for access to clean water.

In December of the same year, the UN General Assembly adopted A/RES/47/193 to formally recognise March 22 as the official observance day for water cleanliness. Some of the focuses from past years include the following –

  • Women and Water
  • Water for Thirsty Cities
  • Water and Disasters
  • Water and Culture
  • Clean Water for a Healthy World

Water for P{eace highlights how water can spark conflict or quell it – depending on how it’s used. When water is scarce, polluted, or a combination tensions can run high. Unequal or no access to water will be discussed, and debated during 2024’s annual observance.
