World Water Day

World Water Day, on 22 March every year, is a United Nations day to draw attention to something which most of us take for granted – clean water.

At WaterAid, we believe water is the beginning of a better world. 

Access to safe, clean water transforms people's lives: it can prevent disease, save time, empower women and keep children in school. And when all those changes happen together the transformation is amazing.

We believe that everyone, everywhere should have access to safe, clean water. And today in our new Everyone everywhere report we are calling on governments around the world to make a clear commitment to ensure that there is universal access to safe water and sanitation by 2030.

This year, globally, WaterAid is getting behind The World Walks for Water and Sanitation, an incredible global movement calling for urgent action to tackle the world's water and sanitation crisis. This campaign also calls on governments around the world to keep their promises on water and sanitation.
