United Nations seeks to raise awareness of water stress and the benefits of collaboration to boost water security
World Water Day will take place on 22 March 2013, this year taking the theme of cooperation and reflecting the United Nation's decision to make 2013 the International Year of Water Cooperation.
The UN wants to raise awareness of increasing water stress as well as the opportunities for governments, businesses and organisations to work together to improve water management
The year is also designed to build momentum created at last year's UN Rio+20 Earth summit, specifically to create new targets to help develop more sustainable water resources.
An official UN international event for World Water Day will be hosted by the Dutch Government, with celebrations also expected to take place around the world on the theme of water cooperation.
