World Water Day – Leaving no one behind!

This year, the World Water Day on 22 March 2019 theme is “Leaving no one behind”, considering groups whose access to water and sanitation may be overlooked and working to break down barriers to truly achieve “water for all”.

What is World Water Day?

Sustainable Development Goal 6 says it clearly: water for all by 2030. By definition, this means leaving no one behind. But today, billions of people are still living without safe water – their households, schools, workplaces, farms and factories struggling to survive and thrive. Marginalised groups – women, children, refugees, indigenous peoples, disabled people and many others – are often overlooked, and sometimes face discrimination, as they try to access and manage the safe water they need.

This World Water Day, 22 March 2019, is about tackling the water crisis by addressing the reasons why so many people are being left behind. IWA members’ daily job is to fight this life threatening situation that costs so many people’s lives and hinders economies and environment to flourish.
