Stamp Symbolizes Water Scarcity and Depletion

First Day of Issue: January 3, 2013 - Spain

Spain will issue a new postage stamp in their Civic Values series honoring the International Year of Water Cooperation. The stamp depicts symbolically the idea of a glass of water, as an individual use of water, pouring onto an inverted tap, as a sign of scarcity and depletion.

The United Nations General Assembly declared 2013 as the International Year of Water Cooperation. The declaration wishes to raise awareness on the need to strengthen cooperation on safe water issues and tackle the challenges of meeting the demands of access to safe water, transboundary water management, water equality and water supply.
