Days Remaining in World Water Day 2024

Water is one of the most important sources of the earth. Without the presence of water life is impossible on this earth. It is this water which makes life possible on earth. The planet is made up of almost 70% of water and if the balance of water is changed on the earth it results into taking of many lives. Water that can be used by the normal humans is pretty less. The water around the world is unusable and is not safe for drinking. Thus the humans are in a danger of losing water to drink. Thus spreading awareness about conserving water is pretty necessary.  To spread this message the United Nations General Assembly decided to celebrate world water day. This was the special initiative taken by the UN to aware the people of the world about the importance of saving water. On 22nd March it is celebrated every year. The date was selected by the UN General Assembly in the year 1993 and since then it is being selected as the World Water Day.

The main aim of the UN is to make sure that they ask the people around the globe to not to waste water and leave the tap open for a longer period of time. In this way the important water can be saved for the use of it by the needy. It was in the year 1993 this day was first observed and since them the number of countries taking part in this awareness program has increased. The various UN countries every year on this day perform certain activities in their countries to spread the word about conservation of water. The main motive of the organization is to try and save the misuse of water. There are many places where water is still not available even for drinking so this is a step which is required to stop this calamity.

In the year 2003 a special organisation of UN was built known as UN water. The task of this committee is to guide the UN countries with a theme on the water day. There have been many themes over the past years which have marked the days of celebration. Some of the remarkable themes selected were Water and Energy that was the theme for 2014. Water is one of the main source of producing electricity. The other remarkable theme for spreading the awareness was Clean water for a healthy world. This was the theme for the year 2010 when the whole world was made aware how much clean water is important for a good health of a person.

In this way with the help of the various themes the world is made aware of the importance of water. Every year the people living on earth are made aware and are requested not to waste water as it is an important resource required for life.
