World Water Day, held annually on 22 March, is a United Nations Observance focusing on the importance of freshwater and raising awareness of the estimated 2.2 billion people living without access to safe water.

The theme for 2020 is water and climate change and how the two are inextricably linked. The campaign will show how changes to the way water is used could help reduce floods, droughts, scarcity and pollution.
