World Water Day: Water Cooperation
In 2013, in celebration of the International Year of Water Cooperation, World Water Day is also dedicated to the theme of cooperation around water. Cooperation is essential to strike a balance between the different needs and priorities and share this precious resource equitably. Since water cuts across all sectors, stakeholders that are not traditionally considered to be water managers must participate. Water cooperation between different social groups, economic sectors, regional governments, countries, and present and future generations, is crucial not only to ensure the sustainable and equitable use of water but also to create and maintain peaceful relations between people.
The official celebrations of World Water Day will be hosted by the Kingdom of The Netherlands in The Hague. Within the limit of capacity constraints, as wide a variety of key stakeholders as possible, from inside and outside the ‘water box’, have been invited.
