UN issues a call for the importance of water for peace in World Water Day 2024

On this day, the United Nations calls to participate, highlighting the need for individuals, families, businesses, and governments to join the “Water for Peace” campaign and make efforts to cooperate on water matters, paving the way towards a more harmonious society. As every year, on March 22nd, World Water Day is celebrated, promoted by the United Nations (UN). This day serves as a reminder of the importance of the accessibility of fresh water in the world, and this year is focused on the role of the water in shaping the peace and avoid conflicts in the world. With over 3 billion people depending on water sources that cross international borders however, only 24 countries have cooperation agreements for all the water resources they share. In DESAL+ Living Lab, we are aware of the importance of working to obtain safe freshwater effectively, sustainably, and with the lowest possible energy cost. Therefore, we are engaged in various desalination research lines for this purpose. Each year, on World Water Day, we release a special newsletter that gathers all our updates from projects included in our cooperation ecosystem. All the information about World Water Day 2024 is available at: If you are not subscribed to our newsletter and would like to receive the World Water Day special edition, you can sign up at:
