ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 21st Mar, 2021 ) :Like other parts of the globe, International World Water Day will be observed across the country on March 22 (Monday) with this year's theme " Valuing Water".
The significance of water is interlinked between households, culture, health, education, economics and the integrity of our natural environment. If we overlook any of these values, we risk mismanaging this finite, irreplaceable resource, the UN said.
An international day to celebrate freshwater was recommended at the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED). The United Nations General Assembly responded by designating 22 March 1993 as the first World Water Day.
