A message from IRC Uganda and Ministry of Water and Environment on the occasion of World Water Day 2015
Every 22nd March, the world commemorates World Water Day with a view to reflect on and highlight key issues around the significance of Water as a finite resource. This year, Uganda joins the rest of the world to celebrate World Water Day with the theme: Water and Sustainable Development. The Government of Uganda, through the Ministry of Water and Environment recognises the fact that adequate water supply to the citizens can contribute significantly to national development. As such, the government always sets aside resources to invest in water supply systems in order to increase the size of the population with access to safe water especially for domestic use.
In commemoration of World Water Day 2015, IRC Uganda in conjunction with the Ministry of Water and Environment (Rural Water Department) sent a public message emphasizing the importance of functionality of water supply systems to sustainable national development.
