FORTHCOMING: World Water Day 2009
In 2009, the focus of World Water Day on March 22 will be on transboundary waters - "Shared Water - Shared Opportunities".
Nurturing the opportunities for cooperation in transboundary water
management can help build mutual respect, understanding and trust among
countries and promote peace, security and sustainable economic growth.
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
(UNESCO) leads the activities of the World Water Day 2009 with the
support of United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the
Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
