Pakistan will host World Environment Day 2021 on June 5 in collaboration with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). On the night of June 4, Prime Minister Imran Khan will actually preside over the World Environment Conference in Islamabad.
Proud Moment for Pakistan in History
Pakistan will be hosting the day for the first time. Prime Minister Imran Khan will also attend this year’s World Environment Conference. The United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres, Pope Francis, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel will all be present at the conference.
Pakistan’s Green Commitment to the Environment
Moreover, Pakistan will make several significant commitments to the event. This will include; the 10 Billion Trees Tsunami Programme, Clean Green Pakistan, the Electric Vehicle Policy, National Parks, and Green Employment. These initiatives are to help mitigate the impact of climate change.
June 5 – World Environment Day
On June 5, Islamabad will host a major environmental conference. Last year China hosted an international conference commemorating World Environment Day. Every year on June 5, the United Nations commemorates World Environment Day to encourage environmental understanding and action around the world.
Furthermore, the theme for this year’s World Environment Day is “ecosystem restoration,” with an emphasis on adjusting the country’s relationship with nature. It will also be the official start of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, which will run from 2021 to 2030. It has expanded to be the largest global outlet for environmental public outreach, with millions of people around the world celebrating it.
Lastly, Pakistan’s struggle for climate change and its efforts for global warming is being cherished by the international arena. There is also a need for every country to participate in this noble cause. There is in fact, a dire need to understand the deep impact of the situation.
