About World Water Day 2003
The goal for World Water Day 2003 is to inspire worldwide political and community action and encourage greater global understanding of the need for more responsible water use and conservation.

The theme for this year’s event is “Water for the Future”, calling on one and all to observe sustainable approaches to water use for the benefit of future generations.

United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the lead UN agency for World Water Day 2003, aims to work with governments and key partners worldwide to plan events that achieve this end.

It is notable that World Water day, this year, coincides with celebrations marking 2003 as the International Year of Fresh Water.
