Not Only is it My Birthday Today!!! March 22nd is also World Water Day!!! *Celebrate*

"The international observance of World Water Day is an initiative that grew out of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro.
The United Nations General Assembly designated 22 March of each year as the World Day for Water by adopting a resolution.This world day for water was to be observed starting in 1993, in conformity with the recommendations of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development contained in chapter 18 (Fresh Water Resources) of Agenda 21.
States were invited to devote the Day to implement the UN recommendations and set up concrete activities as deemed appropriate in the national context.
The Subcommittee welcomes the assistance offered by IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre to contribute to an information network centre in support of the observance of the Day by Governments, as required."

"The first World Water Day 2011 Photogallery is now online featuring some of the highlights from the main event in Cape Town. You can also stay posted on all events in the Un-Water Flickr photostream, along with over 600 of your great photos from cities around the world on the World Water Day 2011 Flickr Photostream >>"
