MetadataShow full item record
This year’s World Water Day celebration focuses on the ability of nature to provide solutions to water challenges. With the theme“Nature for Water”, it campaigns for ‘The answer is in nature’ and raises awareness about nature-based solutions (NBS) as the world seeks to address the ever-growing water challenges we face in the 21st century. NBS conveys the importance of replenishing forests, reconnecting rivers to floodplains, and restoring wetlands, which are sustainable and cost-effective ways to help rebalance the water cycle, mitigate the harmful effects of climate change and improve human health and livelihoods.
