17 June World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought . The purpose of this day is to raise awareness about reducing the effects of drought and famine and preventing the process of desertification. The UN General Assembly passed a resolution on January 30, 1995, to commemorate the day, which has been observed annually since June 17.

Desertification is the process by which a common land gradually dries up and becomes barren, after which at some point it turns into a complete desert.

This process begins when there is a drought in an area, large-scale deforestation, or the use of faulty methods and chemicals in agriculture that destroy the soil's fertility. Make it barren.The continent of Africa is currently the most affected by desertification.

According to the United Nations, 250 million people in the world are currently directly affected by the effects of desertification. In addition, 100 countries and one billion people are at risk of desertification.

According to the UN World Food Program, 23 acres of land around the world are becoming barren every 1 minute.

According to latest reports from international organizations, the ongoing civil wars around the world are also a major cause of desertification, which first makes an area famine-ridden, damages agriculture, then eventually turns the land into a desert where some It also becomes impossible to grow.

In addition, climate change around the world, such as extreme heat and rapid depletion of water resources, is drying up the land and accelerating desertification.

According to experts , the solution to avoid desertification is to plant as many trees as possible on the land so that it can prevent the land from becoming barren and unproductive . For this, uncultivated lands are good where cultivation or horticulture can be done.

In addition, it is very important to manage water resources and use them carefully


The more trees there are…the better. I live in a place with lots of trees. They bring me a lot of peace…and like you said, they stave off desertification.
