World Water Day- ‘Leaving no one behind’

‘Leaving no one behind’ is the theme of World Water Day 2019. World Water Day is held annually on March 22, as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater. Today, billions of people are still living without safe water – their households, schools, workplaces, farms and factories struggling to survive and thrive. Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6) aims to ensure availability and sustainable management of water for all by 2030.
