International Day for Biological Diversity is amongst those important days of May which helps in increasing awareness and understanding of the issues of biodiversity. The theme for 2020 is "Our Solutions are in Nature". The theme aims to show that biodiversity remains the answer to several sustainable development challenges that the world faces.
The critical importance of nature for our wellbeing is being highlighted throughout this week, with daily sub-themes, in advance of Friday's International Day for Biological Diversity (IDB) and its overall theme of "Our solutions are in nature."
As the global community re-examines, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, its relationship with the natural world, one thing is certain: despite our technological advances, humans are completely dependent on healthy and vibrant ecosystems for our health, water, food, medicines, clothes, fuel, shelter and energy, to name a few.
This year's IDB theme, "Our solutions are in nature", emphasises the importance of working together at all levels to build a future of life in harmony with nature. 2020 is a year of reflection, opportunity and solutions. All of us have the opportunity to reflect on how we can "Build back better" to increase the resilience of nations and communities as we recover from this pandemic.
