WORLD WATER DAY 2017 PHOTO CONTEST- WATER IN ALL ITS FORMS AS A HERITAGE TO BE PROTECTED
World Water Day is an international observance established in 1992 by the United Nations and falls on March 22nd every year. “UN Water” promotes World Water Day as an opportunity to learn more about water related issues and be inspired to tell others and take action to make a difference.
A wide range of institutions, individuals and organizations use World Water Day to raise public attention to issues surrounding water, a precious resource that was recognized in 2010 as being a “universal and fundamental human right“.
