Pakistan will host World Environment Day 2021 in partnership with the UN Environment Programme (UNEP). This year’s observance of World Environment Day will be on the theme of ‘ecosystem restoration and focus on resetting our relationship with nature. It will also mark the formal launch of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration 2021 – 2030.

World Environment Day takes place every year on 5 June. It is the United Nations’ flagship day for promoting worldwide awareness and action for the environment. Over the years, it has grown to be the largest global platform for environmental public outreach and is celebrated by millions of people across the world.

Announcing the margins of the virtual 5th UN Environment Assembly (UNEA-5), Pakistan’s Adviser to Prime Minister and Minister of Climate Change Malik Amin Aslam joined UNEP Executive Director Inger Andersen to acknowledge the urgency of preventing, halting, and reversing the degradation of ecosystems worldwide. Led by Prime Minister Imran Khan, the Government of Pakistan – in one of the world’s most ambitious afforestation efforts – plans to expand and restore the country’s forests through a ’10 Billion Tree Tsunami’ spread over 5 years. The campaign includes restoring mangroves and forests and planting trees in urban settings, including schools, colleges, public parks, and green belts. Pakistan has launched Eco-System Restoration Fund to support nature-based solutions to climate change, facilitating the transition towards environmentally resilient ecologically targeted initiatives covering afforestation and biodiversity conservation. Recently, the Prime Minister of Pakistan has launched the “Protected Area Initiative” to develop 15 model Protected Areas across the country to conserve over 7,300 sq km of land area as well as Green Stimulus with the creation of over 5,500 green jobs “The Government of Pakistan is fully committed to playing a leadership role in addressing the issue of climate change, including through the “10 Billion Trees Tsunami” initiative, which will restore and enhance over 1 million hectares of forest across the country,” said Malik Amin Aslam, Advisor to the Pakistani Prime Minister and Minister of Climate Change.”We are honored to host this year’s World Environment Day and lend our support to global restoration efforts.” As Host of World Environment Day, Pakistan will highlight environmental issues and showcase the country’s initiatives and its role in global efforts. The day will be celebrated worldwide through various events and activities, in line with the latest COVID-19 regulations. “2020 was a year of reckoning, facing multiple crises, including a global pandemic and the continued crises of climate, nature, and pollution,” said Inger Andersen, Executive Director of UNEP. “In 2021, we must take deliberate steps to move from crisis to healing: and in so doing, we must recognize that the restoration of nature is imperative to the survival of our planet and the human race.”
