World Water Day is a worldwide event held annually to recognize the importance of clean, fresh water in people's lives and to advocate for sustainable water resource laws and practices throughout the world. Sulieman H. Adamu whilst noting that environmental damage together with climate change are the factors that drive water related crisis around the world, stressed on the need for all to protect the ecosystem to enable the provision of water we need to survive. And make sure that every time you feel that splash of water, you don't take it for granted. This means millions of people with long walks for water, which is often dirty and likely to make them ill. For example, in Niger while 41 per cent of the poorest population doesn't have access to drinking water, 72 per cent of its wealthiest population does.
