World Water Day is an international event under the auspices of the United Nations General Assembly - UN-Water, the entity that coordinates the UN's work on water and sanitation, every year on 22 March, with various activities being held around the world. World Water Day dates back to 1992. Each year a topic is chosen that matches the current or future challenge. The engagement campaign is coordinated by one or more members of the UN-Water mandate.

Today, about half of the workers in the world, 1.5 billion people work in water-related sectors and almost all things depend on water or are related to its delivery. However, millions of people whose work is directly related to water often do not enjoy labor rights. The theme for this year is "Water and Jobs", and the aim is to show that sufficient amounts of water and quality water can change the life and livelihood of workers, and even transform societies and economies.
