Water: our common wealth

World Water Day, held on 22 March every year since 1993, focuses on the importance of freshwater. World Water Day celebrates water and raises awareness of the 2.2 billion people living without access to safe water. It is about taking action to tackle the global water crisis. 

How is the water in your country? For example, according to the SDG indicator,  50% of the population in Peru uses a safely managed drinking water service. What happened with the other 50% of the population? Here more information: https://www.sdg6data.org/country-or-area/Peru#anchor_6.2.1b

Discover the percentage of drinking water, water quality, population with access to sanitation services, or the proportion of wastewater that is treated safely.
