How Will You Celebrate World Water Day?

Posted March 21, 2014 by LSC

World Water Day is March 22, 2014. The theme of World Water Day 2014 is “Energy and Water”.

In 2014, the UN System – working closely with its Member States and other relevant stakeholders – is collectively bringing its attention to the water-energy nexus, particularly addressing inequities, especially for the ‘bottom billion’ who live in slums and impoverished rural areas and survive without access to safe drinking water, adequate sanitation, sufficient food and energy services.

It also aims to facilitate the development of policies and crosscutting frameworks that bridge ministries and sectors, leading the way to energy security and sustainable water use in a green economy. Particular attention will be paid to identifying best practices that can make a water- and energy-efficient ‘Green Industry’ a reality.

What you will do in 2014 and beyond to promote sustainable practices in the realm of water and energy?
