The global water crisis is one of the issues that calls for action. The challenges include water scarcity, water pollution, inadequate water supply and the lack of sanitation for billions of people in less developed countries. World Water Day is an international observance on March 22, 2018. The day brings to light the inequality of access to Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)services and the need to assure the human right to water and sanitation.
