World Water Day, 2018 - Nature for Water
World Water Day is celebrated with a specific aspect of water throughout the World each year on 20th March 2018. Under the theme ‘Nature for Water’, the year 2018 provides an important opportunity of exploring nature based solutions for various water challenges. This theme is closely linked with Sustainable Development Goal 6 “ensuring availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all by 2030” which explicitly talks to halve the proportion of untreated wastewater and increase water recycling and safe reuse.
