Coordinating the UN's work on water and sanitation

Tools and resources on World Water Day web

World Water Day (22 March) is an opportunity to celebrate, show support and get inspired to take action on a big development challenge: Ensuring availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation.

This year, the theme ‘water and jobs’ highlights how enough quantity and quality of water can change people’s jobs and lives and aims to create recognition for those working with water and the need to transition to decent jobs. World Water Day 2016 is coordinated by the International Labour Organization on behalf of UN-Water.

Every year, UN-Water provides tools and resources to understand the topic but also to inspire people to take action, and organize activities and events on World Water Day.Visit the newly launched website here and read more or watch the trailer.
