As the world observes World Meteorological Day Monday, March 23, the UN says there is an urgent need to improve forecasting, monitoring and management of water supplies to tackle the problem of polluted water.

Water is essential for the production of goods and services, but the world now faces increasing challenges posed by water stress, floods and the lack of access to clean supplies.

World Meteorological Day and World Water Day 2020, therefore, share the theme, ”Climate and Water”, to focus on managing climate and water in a more coordinated and sustainable manner. Because they both lie at the heart of global goals on sustainable development, climate change and disaster risk reduction.

Freshwater is vital for life. On average, a human being cannot survive more than three days without it. Water is essential for the production of our food, virtually all of our goods and services and for the environment.

The world now faces increasing challenges posed by water stress, floods and droughts and lack of access to clean supplies. There is an urgent need to improve forecasting, monitoring and management of water supplies and to tackle the problem of too much, too little or too polluted water. – World Meteorological Organization
