International Day of Forests 2015
Forests and trees sustain and protect us in invaluable ways. They
provide the clean air that we breathe and the water that we drink. They
host and safeguard the planet's biodiversity and act as our natural
defence against climate change. Life on earth is made possible and
sustainable thanks to forests and trees.
The theme of the 2015 International Day of Forests (IDF) is Forests | Climate | Change,
chosen purposely to highlight the ways in which forests and climate
change are linked, and to rally global support for greater action and
Join FAO and its partners in celebrating the International Day of Forests on 21 March, by sharing the FAO video spot with
your colleagues, communities, partners and friends around the world, in
order to remind them why and how forests are integral to sustainable
development and action on climate change.
