World Water Day Water For Peace


22 March 2024 - 22 March 2024


The theme of World Water Day 2024 on 22 March 2024 is ‘Water for Peace’.

Key messages for World Water Day 2024

  • Water can create peace or spark conflict. When water is scarce or polluted, or when people struggle for access, tensions can rise. By cooperating on water, we can balance everyone’s water needs and help stabilize the world.
  • Prosperity and peace rely on water. As nations manage climate change, mass migration and political unrest, they must put water cooperation at the heart of their plans.
  • Water can lead us out of crisis. We can foster harmony between communities and countries by uniting around the fair and sustainable use of water – from United Nations conventions at the international level, to actions at the local level.

We can look to highlight the connection between Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and NTDs.
