Water is Work
“No water no jobs” is the sentence we can read in the UN World Water Day campaign. This year’s purpose is to highlight the links between water, jobs and sustainable developments. Indeed, water is essential for life, but it is also essential for jobs.
One and a half billion people (half of the world’s workers) work in water related sectors. According to the report released on the 22th of march, the population in Earth will grow a 33% between 2011 and 2050 (from 7 billion to 9,3 billion). Due to increasing population,one of the main issues will be the global food security.
A day to celebrate freshwater
Each year since 1993, the United Nations dedicated a day to draw people’s attention to the importance of freshwater and to advocate for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. Water World Day was officially assigned to the 22nd of March with a different theme each year, organized by one of the UN’s Water members.
