UN-Water's World Water Day on March 22, 2019, tackles the water crisis by addressing the reasons why so many are being left behind.

On this day, the Global Institute for Water Security (GIWS) will join thousands from around the world in solidarity as we support and amplify World Water Day events and initiatives.
