World Water Day 2020 – We Cannot Afford to Wait.
March 22, 2020
World Water Day celebrates water and raises awareness of the 2.2 billion people living without access to safe water. It is about taking action to tackle the global water crisis. A core focus of World Water Day is to support the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 6: water and sanitation for all by 2030.
World Water Day 2020 is about water and climate change – and how the two are inextricably linked. The campaign shows how our use of water will help reduce floods, droughts, scarcity and pollution, and will help fight climate change itself.
By adapting to the water effects of climate change, we will protect health and save lives. And, by using water more efficiently, we will reduce greenhouse gases.
Water can help fight climate change in many ways:
- Wetlands soak up carbon dioxide from the air.
- Vegetation protects against flooding and erosion.
- Rainwater can be stored for dry periods.
- Wastewater can be reused.
- Climate-smart agriculture.
We cannot afford to wait. Climate policy makers must put water at the heart of action plans.
