Message from the Representative of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in Iraq, Mr. Fadel El-Zubi, on the occasion of The International Day of Forests

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in Iraq and the world celebrate on 21 March the International Day of Forests (IDF).

The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 21 March the International Day of Forests (IDF) in 2012. The Day celebrates and raises awareness of the importance of all types of forests. On each International Day of Forests, countries are encouraged to undertake local, national and international efforts to organize activities involving forests and trees, such as tree planting campaigns.

This year the International Day of Forests promotes education to Learn to Love Forests. It underscores the importance of education at all levels in achieving sustainable forest management and biodiversity conservation. Healthy forests mean healthy, resilient communities and prosperous economies.
