World Water Day, celebrated annually on March 22, was established by the United Nations in 1992 and focuses attention on the world’s water crisis, as well as the solutions to address it.  This day is dedicated to the theme of water quality and its importance as a resource to sustain healthy ecosystems and human well-being. This year, a diverse coalition of water, sanitation, hygiene and health organizations has come together for World Water Day 2010. Its goal is to raise awareness about the importance and meaning of water as the main source of nourishment to human and ecosystems health and call for stronger commitments and more robust action to ensure universal access to safe drinking water and sanitation everywhere they are needed.  Its value cannot be overestimated. It is essential for all life on this planet. So we encourage you to be aware of the impact of this resource in our everyday lives and work all together to improve water quality and usage.
