World Water Day

Did you know that currently, 2.2 billion people live without access to safe water?

Water is undeniably a fundamental element crucial for supporting life.

This fact underscores why much of the world's natural water resources are highly sought after, often leading to needless conflicts in some regions.

As the impacts of climate change continue to escalate in both quantity and intensity, it's imperative that we unite and actively engage in approaches to protect and conserve our most precious water resources.

Today, as we celebrate World Water Day under the theme "Leveraging Water for Peace," let us emphasize the need to develop and implement robust policy mechanisms to safeguard our natural water resources.

May this day also remind us that beyond its importance for drinking, sanitation, and hygiene, safe water is crucial for agriculture, industry, and biodiversity. By working towards water conservation mechanisms that are inclusive, equitable, and environmentally sustainable, we can ensure a more peaceful and prosperous future for all.

Happy World Water Day from the Climate Change Commission!
