It’s more than simply essential to quench desire or shield health; water is vital for creating tasks and encouraging economic, social, and human growth.
World Water Day is observed each year on 22nd March all around the world. It concentrates attention towards importance of water and how to conserve it. As we are aware that water is essential for life, with no water we can’t survive. Up to 60 percent of their human adult body is water. All plants and animals need water to live. If there was not any water there would be no life on earth.
Theme of World Water Day
The theme for World Water Day 2019 is’Leaving no one behind,’ that is the central promise of these 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: as sustainable growth grows, everyone has to benefit.
Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6) aims to guarantee availability and sustainable management of water to all by 2030. By definition, this means leaving no one behind.
Today, billions of people are living without safe water, and that means’safely managed drinking water service’: water that is accessible on the premises, available when necessary, and free of contamination. Their families, schools, workplaces, farms and factories fighting to live and thrive.
Marginalized groups — women, children, refugees, indigenous peoples, disabled people and many others — are frequently overlooked, and sometimes face discrimination, as they attempt to access and manage the safe water they want.
Water is human right
In 2010, the UN recognized”the right to safe and clean drinking water and sanitation as a human right that is essential for the entire joy of life and all human rights”
The human right to water entitles everyone, without discrimination, to adequate, safe, acceptable, physically accessible and affordable water for personal and domestic use; that includes water for drinking, personal sanitation, washing clothes, food preparation, and personal and family hygiene.
Folks are left behind without safe water for many distinct reasons. The following are some of the’reasons for discrimination’ that cause certain individuals to be particularly disadvantaged when it comes to accessing water:
To’leave no one behind’,’ we have to concentrate our efforts towards adding individuals who have been marginalized or ignored. Water services must satisfy the requirements of marginalized groups and their voices need to be heard in decision-making procedures. Regulatory and legal frameworks should reevaluate the right to water to all individuals, and sufficient financing has to be fairly and effectively targeted at people who want it most.
History of World Water Day
We are aware that across the planet on 22nd March World Water Day is celebrated. Officially it was initially added in the program 21 of 1992 year”United Nations Conference on Environment and Development” from the Rio de Janerio, Brazil. And by the year 1993 World Water Day celebrations was started to motivate the folks about the importance of water.
Celebration of World Water Day
The United Nation and the members of nations celebrate this day by organising campaigns and encourage the global water conservation during the real activities. Basically, every year this campaign is encouraged from the UN agencies to encourage the individuals, make them understand about the water problems and also coordinate with all the international activities for the World Water Day.

In fact with UN members and agencies, various NGOs and non government organisations also become involved with the promotional activities to aware men and women.
