The World Bosniak Congress, in cooperation with organizations whose focus is on issues of vital importance for the state of Bosnia and Herzegovina, organized today a conference on the topic: Waters of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The goal of holding this meeting is to present the views of the professional community regarding this important resource of our country, but also to present an artistic review of this blessing.
The program was opened by the Director of the Agency for the Water Area of the Sava River, and the visitors of the Conference were addressed by university professors, relevant ministers and the President of the Board of Elektroprivreda BiH.
In this way, the World Bosniak Congress joined the celebration of World Water Day, which has been held on March 22 every year since 1993 and focuses on the importance of fresh water.
World Water Day celebrates water and raises awareness of the 2.2 billion people who live without access to safe water. It is about taking action to solve the global water crisis. The main focus of World Water Day is to support the achievement of sustainable development goal 6: water and sanitation for all by 2030.
The idea for this international day dates back to 1992, the year in which the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development was held in Rio de Janeiro. In the same year, the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted a resolution declaring March 22 every year as World Water Day, which will be celebrated since 1993.
Later, other celebrations and events were added. For example, the 2013 International Year of Water Cooperation and the current International Decade for Action on Water for Sustainable Development, 2018-2028. These markings serve to reaffirm that water and sanitation measures are key to poverty reduction, economic growth and environmental sustainability.
