The theme of this World Water Day, the United Nations event marked every March 22nd, is “Nature for Water” — a focus, as the United Nations Environment Programme explains, on “nature-based solutions to the water challenges we face in the 21st century” along with the power of cooperation and partnerships to effect change.
How can we reduce floods, droughts and water pollution?
The answer is in nature.
