Valuing water: Where are we, and what do we stand to gain?

World Water Day is observed every year on 22 March. Around the world, 2.2 billion people live without access to safe water, and this day is about raising awareness and taking action to tackle the global water crisis. The theme this year is valuing water. A core focus of the day is to support the achievement of the sixth Sustainable Development Goal: Water and Sanitation for All by 2030.
