World Water Day: Water for Peace

World Water Day is observed every year on March 22nd to raise awareness about the significance of water. It is a day to celebrate the importance of freshwater in our daily lives and to advocate for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. The theme for World Water Day 2024 is “Water for peace”. The aim is to foster harmony, generate prosperity, and build resilience to shared challenges.


Water is essential for human survival, yet millions of people across the world lack access to safe and clean water. According to the United Nations, around 2.2 billion people do not have access to safe drinking water. This is a significant concern, as access to clean water is crucial for good health and sanitation.


World Water Day is an opportunity for individuals, communities, and organizations to take action and raise awareness about the importance of water conservation. It is a day to reflect on our water usage and find ways to reduce our water footprint. Small changes in our daily activities, such as turning off the tap while brushing our teeth or fixing leaky faucets, can go a long way in conserving water.


Apart from individual efforts, governments and organizations also play a crucial role in water conservation. They must take steps to ensure the availability of safe and clean water to all. This can be achieved through the implementation of policies and programs that promote sustainable water management and conservation.


ADRA Bangladesh encourages vulnerable communities in rural areas to use charcoal water filters to ensure safe drinking water. Community Empowerment Project (CEP), Daulatpur, Manikganj implements charcoal water filters and distributes them among marginalized communities.


World Water Day is a reminder, that water is a precious resource and that we must take steps to protect it. It is a day to recognize the value of water and to work towards creating a sustainable future for ourselves and future generations. So, let us all pledge to conserve water and make a positive impact on our planet.
