The World Water Day is held annually on March 22nd to draw the attention to the importance of fresh water and also to support sustainable management of freshwater resources.

The international day to celebrate fresh water has been recommended at the UN Conference on Environment and Development in 1992 (UNCED). The United Nations General Assembly responded by designating March 22nd, 1993 as the first World Water Day.
