This year's theme is "Accelerating the change to solve the water and sanitation crisis" which highlights the critical role of water in our lives and the need to protect and conserve this precious resource.
One of the ways that technology is contributing to this effort is through innovative solutions to address the water and sanitation crisis.
There are several technologies that have been playing important roles in saving water. Let’s have a look at a few and check if you know it or already using it:
Water saving toilets:
One of the significant problems facing the world today is the shortage of clean water.
Water saving toilets is a solution to this problem. These toilets reduce the amount of water used for each flush and are more efficient than traditional toilets.
Water saving toilets help conserve water resources and reduce water bills.

Water treatment technologies are critical in addressing the global water crisis.
They help clean and purify contaminated water, making it safe for human consumption.
Water treatment technologies include desalination, reverse osmosis, and ultraviolet (UV) disinfection.
Smart water meters:
Smart water meters is a technology that helps monitor water usage in real-time.
These meters provide homeowners and businesses with information about their water consumption, which helps them identify areas where they can reduce water use.
Smart water meter is a tool for promoting sustainable water management practices.
How technology adds value to World Water Day:
Technology plays a vital role in addressing the water crisis and promoting sustainable water management practices.
Technology also helps raise awareness about the importance of freshwater and the need for sustainable management of water resources.
By highlighting the role of technology in World Water Day 2023, we can inspire individuals and organizations to take action to protect and conserve this precious resource.
