Croatia Leads EU in Freshwater Resources: Highlighting Importance on World Water Day

Written by  Mar 22, 2024

Today is Water Day, an annual event, highlighting global challenges in accessing clean water and sanitation, with a focus on addressing climate change impacts. Originating from a UN resolution in 1992, it emphasizes universal access to clean water and sanitation facilities.

This year's theme, 'Water and Climate Change,' underscores the urgent need for integrated action. Extreme weather events worsen water scarcity and pollution, posing threats to vital systems worldwide.

Croatia, topping the EU ranking for freshwater resources according to the EU statistical office Eurostat, boasts abundant water sources, surpassing countries like Finland and Sweden.

Ensuring the sustainable management of these resources is crucial for Croatia's development and environmental preservation. Water Day serves as a reminder of the importance of sustainable water management, ensuring equitable access to this essential resource while mitigating climate-related risks.
