March 22 marks World Water Day, an international annual observance for water recommended by the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development back in 1992. This year’s theme is Leaving No One Behind: Whoever you are, wherever you are, water is your human right. This fits rightly with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal No. 6 which is crystal water, safe water for all by 2030.
