World Water Day 2023: March 22 every year is dedicated to raise awareness of the global water crisis. It aims to focus on the importance of freshwater and sustainable management of water resources. Billions of people worldwide still live without safely managed drinking water and sanitation, even though access to both services has long been defined as a human right. World Water Day was first proposed in 1992 during Brazail’s UN conference on Environment and Development (UNCED). Then the UN General Assembly in 1993 designated March 22 as World Water Day.
