INTERNATIONAL DAY OF FORESTS

There is a great concern for the safety of the forest lands and the natural resources therein with the rising forest fire every year. There is a great loss of life to our flora and fauna before we gain control over the fire. Most of the times it goes out of control and we pray rain god to do something. After the recent forrest fires in Australia and now in India, I feel prevention is the key rather than looking for ways to extinguish the fire. At least we can take care not to cause the fire because of man made activities.

The International Day of Forests was established on the 21st day of March, by resolution of the United Nations General Assembly on November 28, 2012. Each year, various events celebrate and raise awareness of the importance of all types of forests, and trees outside forests, for the benefit of current and future generations. Countries are encouraged to undertake efforts to organize local, national, and international activities involving forests and trees, such as tree planting campaigns, on International Day of Forests. The Secretariat of the United Nations Forum on Forests, in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization, facilitates the implementation of such events in collaboration with governments, the Collaborative Partnership on Forests, and international, regional and subregional organizations. International Day of Forests was observed for the first time on March 21, 2013.

  1. This is a crucial concern. The forest fires threaten both people and animals. Forests give off oxygen which people and animals need for life. The Amazon rainforest which is being burned to make way for agriculture also has many species of plants that may have medicinal uses. The land in the Amazon loses its fertility after just a few years of cultivation, but the forests and the animals and native people’s way of life may never return.
