World Water Day-March22
Author: S.Manikandaprabhu Posted On : 22nd March 2016
The world water day is observed on March 22. The theme designated was "Better water, better jobs", several organisations such as UN-WATER and UN-HABITAT are organising the day officially on behest of the UN. While the UN says that a billion people around the world still do not have access to safe drinking water, it has focused on creating more jobs related to water this year. "Today, almost half of the worldâs workers 1.5 billion people work in water related sectors and nearly all jobs depend on water and those that ensure its safe delivery. Yet the millions of people who work in water are often not recognized or protected by basic labour rights. The theme in 2016 water and jobs is focusing on how enough quantity and quality of water can change workersâ lives and livelihoods and even transform societies and economies," it said.
The UN video on water revealed that half of all workers on Earth were employed in water-related sectors, though many of them were unrecognized and unprotected. The World Water Day is observed to create awareness about conservation and protection of water resources. Also, a number of NGOs promoting water conservation, water harvesting and sustainable aquatic habitats organize activities to focus public awareness, attention and action on the local water issues.
