In light of the quickly changing circumstances around the worldwide outbreak of COVID-19 and its health impacts, clean water for sanitation and hygiene has become immeasurably more important.
We are fortunate to have source water from lakes, rivers, streams and groundwater. Whether it’s in the face of a pandemic or climate crisis impacts, progressive action plans for holistic water management, integrated across different sectors and coordinated beyond borders, will continue to support our well-being now and into the future.
World Water Day reminds us that we can honour the preciousness of water with gratitude and good stewardship. We send best wishes to our partner organizations in Canada and to our Living Lakes International friends around the world. Let’s take good care of each other during these challenging times.
