World Water Day 2015
To address the many challenges related to water, we must work in a spirit of urgent cooperation, be open to new ideas and innovation, and prepare to share the solutions that we all need for a sustainable future. March 22nd of each year is just the day set aside for that.
A drop of water is flexible. A drop of water is powerful. A drop of Water is in demand.
Water is at the core of sustainable development. Water resources, and the range of service they provide, underpin poverty reduction, economic growth and environmental sustainability, from food and energy security to human and environmental health, water contributes to improvements in social well-being and inclusive growth, affecting the livelihoods of billions.
The theme for 2015 is, “Water and Sustainable Development”. Water links to all areas and we need to consider creating the future we want. Learn more about the theme and join the global celebration by organizing your own event.
Join Green Cameroon’s 2015 campaign to raise awareness on water and sanitation. It’s a day to celebrate water. It’s a day to make a difference for the members of the global population who suffer from water related issues. It’s a day to prepare for how we manage water in the future.
Each year more than 1 billion of our fellow human beings have little choice but to resort to using potentially harmful sources of water. This perpetuates a silent humanitarian crisis that kills some 3900 children every year and thwarts progress towards achieving the sustainable Development goals. The consequences of our collective failure to tackle this problem are dimmed prospects for the billions of people locked in a cycle of poverty and disease. As the world population grows beyond 7 billion, clean water is growing scarcer in densely populated areas as well as in remote villages.
How we use water, abuse it, and depend on it does matter. Our campaign is to raise awareness about sustaining healthy ecosystem and human well-being through addressing the increasing water quality challenges in water management and to raise the profile of water quality by encouraging governments, organizations, communities, and individuals around the world to actively engage in proactively addressing water quality issues especially in pollution prevention, clean up and restoration.
