UN-Water has dedicated World Water Day 2011 (WWD 2011) to the theme ‘Water and Urbanization’. The objective of WWD 2011 is to focus international attention on the impact of rapid urban population growth, industrialization and uncertainties caused by climate change, conflicts and natural disasters on urban water systems. It will encourage action by governments, organizations, communities, and individuals around the world to actively engage in addressing urban water management challenges. World Water Day 2011 will be celebrated from March 20-22 at the Cape Town International Conference Centre (CTICC).
