World Water Day 2013

World Water Day is held annually on 22 March as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.


  1. The celebration of the World Water Day falls in the International Year for Water Cooperation: 2013.

    On 22 March many were the initiatives all around the world for celebrating the World Water Day: conferences, meetings, reports, info-graphics and many others. All of these initiatives testify the urgency of addressing collectively the challenges posed by water scarcity and by the mismanagement of freshwater resources.

    We collect some of these initiatives in this storify in which we offer a selection of news, events and comments with particular reference to the MENA region. If you missed the World Water Day or you want to refresh this celebration, have a look at this storify to have at least a partial overview of all the efforts to make water an accessible resource for everyone.
