By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The Ministry of Natural Resources, Petroleum and Mining, and its partner agencies join the world in celebrating World Water Day.

A core focus of World Water Day is to inspire action toward Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6: water and sanitation for all by 2030.

The theme for this year’s commemoration is “Accelerating Change.” It focuses on taking action on an individual, community, national and international basis to protect water resources.

 Accelerating change will require that everyone takes specific and deliberate steps.

This World Water Day is about accelerating change to solve the water and sanitation crisis. Water affects everyone, it is important to take action also as families, schools, and communities can make a difference by changing how water is used, consumed, and managed.

The Ministry noted that some of the actions that can be taken include saving and using water conservatively; stopping pollution of the country’s waters; taking part in clean-ups of local rivers, lakes, wetlands, and beaches; and planting a tree or creating a rain garden.

These are natural solutions to reduce the risk of flooding.

Belize is a country considered to be rich in water resources. However, like many other low-lying coastal nations, Belize is vulnerable to the effects of climate change, being exposed to the risk of rising sea levels that threaten the country’s water resources.

The Ministry of Natural Resources, Petroleum and Mining and its partners will be engaged in several activities that will bring awareness and empowerment to the Belizean population to help accelerate change to save water resources.

Activities include World Water Day award, water summit 2023 and world water day fair.

The Government of Belize, through the Ministry of Natural Resources, is committed to protecting Belize’s water resources from pollution and using it sustainably to balance the needs of people and the planet.

The urges everyone to take some time to reflect on what they can do on an individual basis to protect and preserve water.
