World Environment Day - statistics & facts

World Environment Day is one of the most famous international observances dedicated to celebrating the importance of nature and its ability to sustain various lifeforms. The United Nations established World Environment Day in 1972 during the first day of the Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment for encouraging worldwide awareness and action to protect our environment. Since its inception in 1974, the event has grown to become a global platform for public outreach.
On June 5th every year, World Environment Day is observed to raise awareness about environmental issues like climate change, marine pollution, over-population, restoring habitats, and sustainable consumption. Individuals, governments, and socially responsible companies usually mark the day with eco-friendly initiatives.

The theme of World Environment Day 2021

The theme of World Environment Day 2021 is Ecosystem Restoration -reimagine, recreate, restore. Every year the day is hosted by a different country and the global host for this year is Pakistan. It also marks the launch of the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030)- a global action to restore degraded terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. The need for global action is necessary as various ecosystems are being destroyed at an alarming rate, causing global wildlife populations to plummet. Ecosystem restoration assists in the recovery of degraded ecosystems and includes conservation measures to retain the existing ones. The COP 15 of the Convention on Biological Diversity that is to be held later this year is expected to see new targets being set for biodiversity protection.

Investing in Nature

Conservation of biodiversity and ecosystems through nature-based solutions is a cost-effective way to increase the planet’s resilience. As of 2020, nearly 141 countries were exposed to at least one ecological threat. While both land and marine protected areas continue to expand globally, financing mitigation and adaptation projects have been a great challenge. Current estimates suggest that the annual investment directed towards nature-based solutions should increase three-fold annually by 2050, in order to meet climate change, biodiversity, and land degradation targets.
