The United Nations General Assembly adopted resolution A/RES/67/200 on 21 December 2012, which declared that 21 March of each year is to be observed as the International Day of Forests (IDF).

This global celebration of forests provides a platform to raise awareness of the importance of all types of woodlands and trees, and celebrate the ways in which they sustain and protect us.

At the UN-REDD Programme, we believe that forests are fundamental not just for the well-being of cities and their inhabitants, but also for the future of our planet, our livelihoods, sustainable development and the global economy. And most importantly, for the global climate change battle.

By strengthening collaboration across policy divides, between sectors and in a true spirit of common cause, we can ensure that forests will continue to provide the benefits that our climate system and all human livelihoods depend on, not just in cities, but everywhere around the globe.
