World Water Day 2009 – Transboundary Water – 22 March 2009

February 26, 2009 at 9:32 am Leave a comment

In 2009, the theme for World Water Day (22 March) is “Shared Water – Shared Opportunities”. Special focus will be placed on transboundary waters. 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 Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) are the lead agencies for World Water Day 2009.

Campaign materials – desktop wallpapers, mobile content, photo galleries, T-Shirt templates, and banners & buttons – are available on the World Water Day 2009 web site.

Read the UN-Water Thematic Paper: Transboundary Waters – Sharing Benefits, Sharing Responsibilities.

The IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre maintains its own World Water Day web site since 1998. You can add your own WWD event here.
