By Zoila Palma: Today is World Water Day 2021. The theme of World Water Day 2021 is “valuing water.”

The United Nations General Assembly designated March 22, 1993 as the first World Water Day.

The day is commemorated to raise awareness of the 2.2 billion people living without access to safe water. It is about taking action to tackle the global water crisis.

A core focus of World Water Day is to support the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6: Water and sanitation for all by 2030.

Belize’s Ministry of Natural Resources, Mining and Petroleum, in conjunction with various local water partners, is also celebrating World Water Day.

The Ministry says that it celebrates the vital importance of freshwater.

The UN-Water has focused on five key areas in which water can be valued:

Valuing water sources – natural water resources and ecosystems

Valuing water infrastructure – storage, treatment, and supply

Valuing water services – drinking water, sanitation, and health services

Valuing water as an input to production and socio-economic activity – food and agriculture, energy and industry, business and employment

Valuing socio-cultural aspects of water – recreational, cultural, and spiritual attributes

The Ministry and the World Water Day Planning committee are encouraging everyone to visit the Hydrology Belize or Belize Department of the Environment Facebook pages and leave a message about “What water means to me”.

Water carries different values to everyone and local experiences should be highlighted, the Ministry noted.
