World Water Day – 2021

In order to mark the World Water Day-2021, an educational programme for school children was organised on 24 March 2021 at the Kothmale International Training Institute of Irrigation and Water Management (KITI-IWM), Sri Lanka.

The programme was conducted for the Ordinary Level School children aged 15-16, representing seven rural schools in the central hilly areas. Altogether, 80 participants (34 males and 38 females) including teachers attended the programme. Art, poster and essay competitions were held on the WWD-2021 theme of “Valuing Water”and the winners were rewarded. All the participating students were issued with certificates and plants at the end of the programme.

Two presentations; one on “Water Conservation” and the other one on “Climate Change in Sri Lanka and its Impact on Water Resources” were made by two eminent resource persons in the country.

Students were informed that follow-up activities will be conducted to assess the outcomes and to support their initiatives.

Dr. S. Pathmarajah, Country Coordinator/Cap-Net Lanka and Eng. (Mr.) Frankie Perera, Director, KITI-IWM coordinated the programme.
