World Water Day

22 March 2020 | Water and Climate Change

Our offices around the world are showing support for the United Nations' World Water Day 2020. Held every March 22 since 1993, World Water Day provides an opportunity to learn about water-related issues and inspire change.

"We must do our part in advancing this conversation. This is a great opportunity to help elevate the importance of water, sanitation and sustainability, and take action to make a difference in our communities."

- Glen Ellmers, president for HDR's global water practice

This year's World Water Day theme is "Water and Climate Change" which focuses attention on how the two are inextricably linked. Adapting to the water effects of climate change will protect health and save lives. While using water more efficienlty will reduce greenhouse gases.
