World Water Day 2011 Events on Twitter

Tuesday 22nd March 2011

Water is a basic requirement for all life, yet water resources are facing increasing demands from, and competition among, users. In 1992, the UN General Assembly designated 22 March of each year as the World Day for Water. This is the first time in human history that most of the world’s population live in cities: 3.3 billion people ...and the urban landscape continues to grow

The objective of World Water Day 2011 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 theme, Water for cities: responding to the urban challenge, aims to spotlight and encourage governments, organizations, communities, and individuals to actively engage in addressing the challenges of urban water management.
38% of the growth is represented by expanding slums, while the city populations are increasing faster than city infrastructure can adapt.
