World Water Day 2019: Leaving No One Behind

World Water Day 2019: Leaving No One Behind

World Water Day is observed annually on March 22 to raise awareness about the vital importance of water to everything from public health and youth education to economic development and gender equality. The theme for World Water Day 2019 is "Leaving No One Behind," which is based on a core pledge of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development—that everyone must benefit from progress. 

The U.S. Government Global Water Strategy and the USAID Water and Development Plan in support of the Strategy include a focus on increasing sustainable access to safe drinking water, and like the 2030 Agenda, recognize access to water as crucial to lifting people out of poverty—and especially important for unlocking educational and economic opportunities for women and girls.

This page will be updated over the next few weeks with more USAID-related information and resources for World Water Day 2019.
