World Water Day 2022 for Our Groundwater

Who’s always be in concerned with water? YES! Water is definitely the primary need for us as living creatures. Today is the day for water, as United Nations has mobilized political will and resources to address the global problems of water since 1993. Quoted from un.org, the focus is the importance of freshwater. The observances of World Water Day are then annually held on every 22 March to raise the awareness of people who are living without access to safe water.

The idea began in 1992 when United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro took place, and United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution by which 22 March of each year was declared World Day for Water, to be observed starting in 1993. This year’s World Water Day is focusing on groundwater to be an invisible resource with an impact visible everywhere. “Groundwater, making the invisible visible” is the theme.

Sourced from un.org, there are 2.2 billion people who don’t have access to safe water, so this day is about taking action to tackle the global water crisis.

According to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) agenda, this day is in line with SDG number 6, which is water and sanitation for all by 2030.

Why Groundwater?

Sourced from un.org, groundwater is water found underground in aquifers, which are geological formations of rocks, sands, and gravels that hold substantial quantities of water. Groundwater feeds springs, rivers, lakes, and wetlands, and seeps into oceans. Groundwater is recharged mainly from rain and snowfall infiltrating the ground. Groundwater can be extracted to the surface by pumps and wells.

It’s like we can’t live without groundwater. Most places depend on groundwater as it supplies the use of drinking, sanitation, food production, and industrial processes. It is also critically important to the healthy functioning of ecosystems, such as wetlands and rivers. So, we must protect it from overexploitation, abstracting more water than is recharged by rain and snow, and the pollution that currently haunts them, since it can lead to the depletion of this resource, extra costs of processing it, and sometimes even preventing its use.

Therefore, any events held for this observance serve to reaffirm that water and sanitation measures are key to poverty reduction, economic growth, and environmental sustainability. So, here’s Twibbonize to the rescue! A lot of World Water Day frame is here for you.

Using and sharing your photo with the frame and spreading your awareness about groundwater would be a simple act you can do for this world.

“Out of sight, under our feet, groundwater is a hidden treasure that enriches our lives. Almost all of the liquid freshwater in the world is groundwater. As climate change gets worse, groundwater will become more and more critical. Groundwater may be out of sight, but it must not be out of mind.” – United Nations.
