Water is critical for each of the Sustainable Development Goals, from the eradication of poverty and hunger to ensuring equal access to water and sanitation services. To encourage further cooperation and partnership to achieve water-related goals and targets, the UN will launch a Water Action Decade on World Water Day (22 March) in the General Assembly Hall. Over the next 10 years, the Decade will highlight solutions for better and more sustainable management of water resources to improve social, economic and environmental objectives.

The decade will commence on World Water Day 2018 and end on World Water Day 2028.
