About World Water Day

United Nations has officially identified World Water Day to be 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.

The annual celebration opens on 2 March, as a platform to rally the community to celebrate and conserve water, and organise events about water. In the month of March, there will be more than 64 roadshows at shopping centres and community events held islandwide where the public can learn more about how to save water and pledge their commitment to do so. Water rationing exercises will also be conducted in schools to inculcate water-saving habits among our youths. ​
