International Day of Forest Celebrated at Singapore

Singapore: This global celebration of forests provides a platform to raise awareness of the importance of all types of forests and of trees outside forests.

“Forests cover one third of the Earth’s land mass, performing vital functions around the world. Around 1.6 billion people – including more than 2,000 indigenous cultures – depend on forests for their livelihood,” said Sandeep Marwah Global Cultural Minister during his visit to Botanical Garden at Singapore.

Forests are the most biologically diverse ecosystems on land, home to more than 80% of the terrestrial species of animals, plants and insects. They also provide shelter, jobs and security for forest-dependent communities.

Yet despite all of these priceless ecological, economic, social and health benefits, global deforestation continues at an alarming rate – 13 million hectares of forest are destroyed annually. Deforestation accounts for 12 to 20 percent of the global greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change.

“Every year on the International Day of Forests we celebrate the ways in which forests and trees sustain and protect us. This year we are raising awareness of how forests are key to the planet’s supply of freshwater, which is essential for life” added Marwah also Ambassador of IHRO affiliated to United Nations.
