Int'l Day of Forests 2019 (video)

Forests are part of our lives in more ways than we realize

When we drink a glass of water, write in a notebook, take medicine for a fever, or build a house, we do not always make the connection with forests. Yet, these and many other aspects of our lives are linked to forests.

Forests, their sustainable management and use of resources, particularly in fragile ecosystems, are key to combating climate change and to contributing to the prosperity and well-being of current and future generations.

Forests also play a crucial role in poverty alleviation and in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Healthy forests mean healthy, resilient communities, and prosperous economies. More
