WORLD WATER DAY BEING OBSERVED TODAY.

WORLD WATER DAY BEING OBSERVED TODAY.

ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The World Water Day is being observed across in the country and elsewhere across the globe today in a befitting manner.

The United Nations General Assembly designated March 22 as the World Water Day since 1993, following a resolution taken in Rio, Brazil, in 1992 when demands were made to designate a special day for water resources.

The day was first celebrated on March 22, 1993 and aims to focus on the importance of water and need to preserve it.

More than 1,000 million people lack basic water supply and 1.5 million children die each year from diseases caused by contaminated, non-drinkable water.

An analysis shows that at least 200 cities across the world have been facing a severe water crisis while 10 metropolitan cities, among them Karachi, were fast moving towards ‘Day Zero’—a situation where taps start running dry.

The assessment by Down To Earth, a magazine published by green think-tank Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), sounds alarm bells for many cities across the globe on the occasion of the World Water Day which is observed every year on March 22.
