Every year on March 22nd, World Water Day is commemorated to raise awareness about the importance of water to the whole world. The day also stresses the need for all countries to increase access to water, sanitation, and hygiene services.
However, as the world’s population grows, so does the demand to tap more and more resources, resulting in the overuse and depletion of all-natural resources. As a result, people all over the world are experiencing severe water shortages today.
Therefore, on March 22nd world water day is observed worldwide to save water and raise awareness this year was no exception.
We can’t convey the importance of water in a few sentences. Water is perhaps the most important thing for our survival on this planet.
Water supplies, on the other hand, are declining in many nations, including Pakistan. People in certain places often have a strong need for safe, drinkable water.
However, in places where there is a plentiful amount of water, people misuse it for no particular cause. People must be informed about the importance of water in today’s world, as water shortage is causing more environmental concerns.
“The World Water Day honors water and increases awareness of the global water crisis,” according to the UN’s official website, “and a central aim of the observance is to help the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6: water and sanitation for everyone by 2030.”

Yearly, World Water Day is paired with a theme. This theme sheds light on a variety of issues concerning the cause. The theme for World Water Day 2021 is “valuing water,” which stresses the importance of water protection and the value of water.
“The value of water is about much more than its price – water has enormous and complex value for our households, food, culture, health, education, economics, and the integrity of our natural environment. If we overlook any of these values, we risk mismanaging this finite, irreplaceable resource,” says the UN website.
