“Each year, World Water Day highlights a specific aspect of freshwater. Under the theme ‘Water and Jobs’, the year 2016 provides an important opportunity to consolidate and build upon the previous World Water Days to highlight the two-way relationship between water and the decent work agenda in the quest for sustainable development.
UN-Water supports the World Water Day campaign and sets the theme each year. At the World Water Week 2014, UN-Water presents the plan for the World Water Day 2016 campaign, which is coordinated by ILO with the support of other UN-Water Members and Partners.
Participants will get an opportunity to learn more about the theme of World Water Day, get the latest update on how the international community perceives the role of decent work in promoting the human right to water and will be invited to get involved in the campaign. In addition, participants will also discover the logo of the World Water Day 2016.”
