Water cooperation is a foundation for peace and sustainable development. Water cooperation contributes to poverty reduction and equity, creates economic benefits, helps preserve water resources and protect the environment, and builds peace.
To focus attention on this important subject, celebrations for this year's observance of World Water Day, on 22 March 2013, took place under the theme of water cooperation.
To mark the observance, students from UCA Farnham contributed a video animation in four languages.
