World Water Day , on 22 March every year, is about focusing attention on the importance of water.
The Theme for World Water Day 2018 is " Nature for Water - exploring nature-based solutions to the water challenges we face in the 21st century."
National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC), Hyderabad is organizing the "World Water Day Celebrations" on March 22, 2018 on the occasion of World Water Day.
Damaged ecosystems affect the quantity and quality of water available for human consumption. Today, 2.1 billion people live without safe drinking water at home; affecting their health, education and livelihoods. Sustainable Development Goal 6 commits the world to ensuring that everyone has access to safe water by 2030, and includes targets on protecting the natural environment and reducing pollution.
Environmental damage, together with climate change, is driving the water-related crises we see around the world. Floods, drought and water pollution are all made worse by degraded vegetation, soil, rivers and lakes. When we neglect our ecosystems, we make it harder to provide everyone with the water we need to survive and thrive. Nature-based solutions have the potential to solve many of our water challenges. We need to do so much more with "green" infrastructure and harmonize it with "grey" infrastructure wherever possible.
