Resource Spotlight: World Water Day – March 22

A yearly United Nations observance, World Water Day brings awareness to the fact that over 2 billion people on our planet are living without access to safe drinking water. The theme for 2022 is GROUNDWATER – MAKING THE INVISIBLE VISIBLE.

Read more about groundwater, what makes it special, and why it will become increasingly important as the world deals with climate change. As water is an essential resource for everyone, one of the main focal points of this international campaign is Clean Water and Sanitation, one of the UN’s 17 sustainable development goals.
