World Water Day – Tuesday 22 March

Today is World Water Day! This year’s theme is ‘Water for cities: Responding to the Urban Challenge‘.

World Water Day is an initiative that grew from the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janeiro.

You can also download the Water is Life interviews prepared by The Environment Institute and conducted by Dr Anne Jensen of the Water Research Centre. University researchers describe why water is so important for a healthy Murray River.

Audio-visual material is still available from the Adelaide Water Forum held last October at the Adelaide Zoo. The forum was a joint initiative of the WRC and SA Water. The theme was ‘Being Smarter with Less Water‘ and looked at global perspectives of sustainable water management, current research and development and opportunities for smarter water management.
