World Water Day 2021
This year’s World Water Day (March 22) theme is ‘Valuing Water’. At IWMI we are highlighting the value of water as central to all systems that underpin human life. Water is crucial when addressing the key challenges faced by the world today from climate change and environment to health and global hunger.
The knowledge that will underpin solutions to these global challenges is at the heart of IWMI’s mission – to provide water solutions for sustainable, climate-resilient development.
But, as well as the challenges we also see the positives: we read stories about wild-swimming, how people look to the rivers and lakes for calm, we read about new technologies that are helping smallholders improve their irrigation systems. Conversations IWMI is contributing to.
This year, the UN theme for World Water Day is “valuing water”. At IWMI, we know that water is at the root of the many issues our planet and people are facing. But we also know that water can have personal significance too. So, we asked our colleagues what water means to them. We prepared a video showing what our IWMI colleagues value most about water, which we’ll launch on World Water Day.
