World Water Day

March 22 is World Water Day, a date declared by the UN General Assembly to raise public awareness of the correct way to manage water, a public and universal scarce resource that needs to be appreciated and conserved, and which faces big challenges today that include climate change.

To mark this date, Barcelona is playing host to various activities linked to water and the need to embrace a new form of governance that values water and fosters its distribution in a fairer, more transparent and more sustainable way.

In that regard, the city is opting for a public water management that promotes rational consumption and greater efficiency in the supply system's service and coverage.
