World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought in
Days to go:
The World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought is an annual event aimed at raising awareness about the devastating effects of these issues on global ecosystems, food production, and economies. One of the key aspects of this observance is to educate communities and governments on the importance of sustainable land management practices, inevitably leading to a healthier environment, more resilient economies and enhanced quality of life.
The origins of the World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought date back to 1994, following the United Nations General Assembly's adoption of the UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD). Australia's arid climate and variable rainfall patterns make it crucial for the nation to engage in the discussion and act upon the threats posed by desertification and drought. As a country whose population and industries are heavily reliant on agriculture and natural resources, Australia has much at stake, making its citizens and leaders potential contributors to finding global solutions to these environmental challenges.
Throughout Australia, communities, organisations, and governments come together on this day, engaging with each other through various events and activities. These include informational presentations that highlight best practices in sustainable land management, removal of invasive species, and planting native vegetation to bolster natural habitats. Australians are urged to learn and become involved in the World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought, as a collective effort is necessary to better manage the land and resources, ultimately securing a prosperous future for generations to come. The World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought is observed on June 17th every year.
