Celebrating World Water Day
This event is held as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.
Each year, World Water Day highlights a specific aspect of freshwater. In 2014, World Water Day is on "Water and Energy". Water and energy are closely interlinked and interdependent. Energy generation and transmission requires utilization of water resources, particularly for hydroelectric, nuclear, and thermal energy sources. Conversely, about 8% of the global energy generation is used for pumping, treating and transporting water to various consumers. Particular attention will be paid to identifying best practices that can make a water- and energy-efficient 'Green Industry' a reality.
