Press Release

Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity Celebrates World Environment Day.

As climate change is one of the burning issues on the global agenda, it is only fitting that the theme of this year’s World Environment Day, “Melting Ice – a Hot Topic?”, coincides with International Polar Year, and is reflective of the impacts of climate change on our planet. On 23 March this year, the World Meteorological Organization celebrated World Meteorological Day under the theme Polar meteorology: understanding global impacts, and on 22 May, the International Day for Biological Diversity was celebrated under the theme Biodiversity and Climate Change. This highlights the importance of raising awareness of the negative impacts of climate change on all forms of life, and especially the fragile polar environments.
