The UN General Assembly proclaimed March 21 as the International Day of Forests in 2012 to commemorate and raise awareness of the significance of all types of forests.
This day is a reminder of the value of forests in the lives of living creatures. Forests play a major role in providing food, water, shelter to animals as well as human beings in uncountable ways.
International Day of Forests 2021 theme
The theme of the International Day of Forests for 2021 is "Forest restoration: a path to recovery and well-being." The restoration and sustainable management of forests can help in addressing the issues related to climate change and biodiversity.
It also carries the potential to produce goods and services for sustainable development, fostering an economic activity that creates jobs and improves lives.
