World environment day held

82

Pakistan joins the international community in celebrating the “World Environment Day 2022” on the theme “Only One Earth”.

This year’s World Environment Day is significant because it marks fifty years since the 1972 United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, that was the first international meeting on environment and led to the creation of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).

“Only One Earth” was the slogan for the 1972 UN Conference. Fifty years on, this truth still holds – planet Earth is our only home.

For the last five decades, the world has been observing this Day as the largest global platform for raising public awareness about the pressing environmental challenges. As one of top ten most climate vulnerable countries, Pakistan highly values the global efforts to combat climate change, halt.
