Groundwater is the theme of this new World Water Day, celebrated every year on 22nd March at the initiative of the United Nations since 1993.
World Water Day aims
- to raise awareness of the global water crisis,
- to support the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 6 ♻ (SDG 6): clean water and sanitation for all by 2030.
The theme of the day is set by UN-Water. After last year’s theme of water valuation, this year’s theme is groundwater.
Groundwater: making the invisible visible
Groundwater feeds springs, rivers, lakes and drains into the oceans. It is mainly formed by rain and snow that infiltrates the ground and can be extracted from the surface by various ways of pumping.
Their importance lies in the fact that water is not only essential to the functioning of ecosystems, but also provides much of the water we use.
Groundwater is at the heart of sustainable development, and plays a fundamental role in drinking water supply systems, agriculture and industry.
Unfortunately, their resources are not unlimited. Overconsumption and pollution have an impact on their quality and sustainability. Groundwater plays an essential role and, although invisible, it is a vital resource. That is why we must protect it by combining the needs of the population with those of the planet.
ICE Water Management is joining the movement by participating in this awareness day and helping to spread the message.
