World Water Day

World Water Day is held every year on March 22nd. This year the theme relates to both water and energy. Water and energy are closely interlinked and interdependent. Energy generation and transmission requires utilization of water resources, particularly for hydroelectric, nuclear, and thermal energy sources.

The UN is working with its relevant stakeholders to bring attention to the water-energy connection particularly in regard to the ‘bottom billion’ who live in slums and poverty stricken areas with little to no access to clean water, adequate sanitation, sufficient food and energy services.

Specific attention will be paid to identifying the best practices that can make a water and energy efficient Green Industry a reality.

The main celebrations of World Water Day will be organized by the United Nation University (UNU) and United Nations International Development Organization (UNIDO) on behalf of UN-Water on 20-21 March 2014 and will take place at the UNU Headquarters in Tokyo, Japan. On this occasion, the World Water Development Report 2014 on Water and Energy will be launched, and the UN-Water “Water for Life” Best Practices Award will be given.
