   TwitCount

Each year, World Water Day draws attention to a specific aspect of freshwater. Under the theme ‘Water and Sustainable Development’, World Water Day 2015 provides an opportunity to build on the messages from previous years and highlight the role of water in sustainable development. http://programme.worldwaterweek.org/event/world-water-day-3923  

The ‘Water for Life Decade’ was launched in 2005 with the aim to promote efforts to fulfil international commitments made on water and water-related issues by 2015.  The focus is on furthering cooperation at all levels, so that the water-related goals of the Millennium Declaration, the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation of the World Summit for Sustainable Development, and Agenda 21 can be achieved. http://www.un.org/waterforlifedecade/ 

ICIMOD, in close collaboration with the Nepal National Water Week Committee (on behalf of the Government of Nepal), is carrying out the following activities to celebrate World Water Day 2015 on 22 March.
