    As World Water Day is celebrated all over the globe on Wednesday, take a look at mesmerizing images of well-known and not so famous waterfalls, gifted to us by Mother Nature.

    March 22 marks World Water Day, annually celebrated since 1993. The day focuses attention on the importance of universal access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) facilities in developing countries, as well as advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.

    UN-Water, the United Nations inter-agency entity, selects a theme for each year's World Day for Water. In 2017, the "Why waste water?" theme highlights reducing and reusing wastewater.
