The theme of the 2016 World Water Day celebration — “Water and Jobs” — spoke to the central but often overlooked role water plays in the workforce and in communities around the world. In recognition of the many ways safe and adequate water supply and improved sanitation unleash the economic potential of individuals and entire communities, USAID’s Water Team invites you to take a look at how some of the world’s many unsung water heroes play important roles in bringing clean water to their communities to enhance health and livelihoods, increase food security, and ensure a more water-secure future for all.
