With this theme: “Water for cities: responding to the urban Challenger” is celebrated the World Water Day 2011.
Each year, World Water Day highlights a specific aspect of freshwater. The objective of World Water Day 2011, held annually on 22 March, is to focus international attention on the impact of rapid urban population growth, industrialization and uncertainties caused by climate change, conflicts and natural disasters on urban water systems.
This year’s theme, Water for cities, aims to spotlight and encourage governments, organizations, communities, and individuals to actively engage in addressing the challenge of urban water management.
