World Water Day, is an annual UNO event held on 22 March, focuses on the importance of freshwater.
World Water Day raises awareness of the 2.2 billion people living without access to safe water. A core focus of World Water Day is to support the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 6: Water and Sanitation for All by 2030.
This 2022, the focus is groundwater, an invisible resource with an impact visible everywhere. Life would not be possible without groundwater. Groundwater is water found underground in aquifers and feeds springs, rivers, lakes and wetlands, and seeps into oceans. It is recharged mainly from rain and snowfall infiltrating the ground.
