Today, March 22nd, World Water Day is a day to reflect and raise awareness. This day is celebrated with the intention of raising awareness about the importance of freshwater and the need for its sustainable management. This celebration was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1993 and has become an opportunity to reflect on the vital role of water for people and the environment.

Drinking water is a vital resource, the consumption of which is increasing every day while its availability is decreasing rapidly. Worldwide, water scarcity and mismanagement have led to the pollution of rivers, lakes and oceans. In addition, most people do not have access to clean, safe drinking water, leaving them exposed to and suffering from a wide range of diseases.

Below we link a series of news related to our country so that you can get an idea of the current situation we are facing.

The water scarcity situation is worrying and, as you have seen in the links above, it is getting worse in our country and in other parts of the world. It is important that we take urgent action to reverse this negative trend.

This negative situation shows no signs of improvement, quite the contrary. We must do everything in our power to save water and solve this solution before it is too late. We must all contribute to finding solutions and promoting sustainable practices that protect and conserve water. Only by working together can we guarantee that water will be available for future generations and ensure that this vital resource does not run out.
