Organised by: UN-Water under the coordination of UN-HABITAT with support from UNEP.

Theme: Water for Cities: responding to the urban challenge

The United Nations General Assembly designated 22 March of each year, starting in 1993, as World Water Day. In 2011 World Water Day will focus international attention on the impact of rapid urban population growth, industrialisation and climate change on water resources and environmental protection capabilities of cities and small towns.

Key issues such as the growing urban water and sanitation demand, increased pollution from municipal and industrial discharges, climate change and its unforeseen risks and challenges, overexploitation of available water resources, better targeting of the urban poor will be discussed. The critical role played by local governments and other service providers in tackling these challenges will be explored.

The official web site (under development) will be: www.unwater.org/worldwaterday
