The Hindu Kush Himalaya supports the lives and livelihoods of 1.9 billion people, among which 0.92 billion live in the Indus, Ganges, and Brahmaputra river basins. The main sources of water in these three basins are snow and glacier melt, and rainfall-groundwater-runoff processes.
World Water Day is celebrated on 22 March every year to focus on the importance of freshwater. The theme for this year, “Valuing Water”, aims to capture how different people and various sectors value water and its uses, and the water-related challenges they are facing due to climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Water is fundamental to life and adds enormous value to our lives, livelihood, wellbeing, cultural practices, and to the environment. By recognizing and better understanding all the different values attributed to water, we can safeguard it effectively for everyone.
