International World Water Day 2012

International World Water Day is held annually on 22 March as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources
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.

Each year, World Water Day highlights a specific aspect of freshwater, this year’s theme is: “Water and Food Security”. Follow the Live Webcast of the Official World Water Day 2012 ceremony: http://www.fao.org/webcast/
