Since 1993, World Water Day has educated people around the globe on the importance of water by highlighting a specific aspect of fresh water each year. World Water Day asks businesses and consumers to evaluate their water use habits and think beyond our current supply. Understanding your personal water use, or your businesses water use, is a crucial first step in understanding the bigger picture.
World Water Day is celebrated in countries all over the world. This year’s theme, Leave No One Behind. This is in response to the promise the world made in 2015. A promise of water for all by 2030 specified in the Sustainable Development Goals and Targets. Up till the moment of writing this, billions of people are being left behind without safely managed drinking water.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO). A "safely managed drinking water" is defined as the use of an improved drinking water source which is located on premises, available when needed, and free of fecal matter and priority chemical contamination.
