World Water Week 2022 will communicate simply and clearly the value of water for human and societal activities. As people and nations gain a better understanding of how important water is to their lives and to everything they care about, they place a higher value on it. This creates a virtuous cycle, in which people care for water better, manage and share it more equitably, and waste or pollute it less, so that the water can generate more benefits for people and nature.
During the Week, it will be explored the value of water from many different perspectives. One starting point will be how improved water management and governance can help us achieve the 2030 Agenda and the global Sustainable Development Goals, which are currently under acute pressure, and the targets of the Paris Agreement on climate change. We will be more likely to succeed if we understand the value that water brings.
