World Water Day is celebrated every year on March 22. It is a day to focus attention on the key importance of our planet's freshwater resources and to push for greater recognition of their sustainable management. Each year’s theme is proposed by UN-Water and is part of a broader campaign that highlights the complex role of water in our daily lives. World Water Day is a crucial opportunity to reflect and act.

This webinar is presented by the International Water Resources Association, and as each webinar, it features leading experts in the field, providing a synthesis of the critical facts and arguments needed to help the audience understand and discuss water policy.  It is designed to reach academics, dedicated practitioners, and policy professionals in a unique and informative way.
