Based on the success of the previous UWEWKs, the MWE through the Water
Resources Institute (WRI) will hold the sixth (6th) UWEWK from Sunday 12th
March to Friday 17th March 2023. During the event three annual
International Days will be commemorated namely: International Forest Day
(March 21st), World Water Day (March 22nd) and World Meteorological Day

The UWEWK 2023 is intrinsically linked to the National Development Plan 3

enhancing value addition in key growth opportunities; ensuring availability of
adequate and reliable quality fresh water resources for all uses, reducing human
and economic loss from natural hazards and disasters, increasing incomes and

and other natural resources.
