June 17 is the World Day to Combat Desertification and Land Degradation.

The UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD), of which Albania is also a member, has decided to declare the worldwide celebration of this symbolic day in order to raise awareness of all governments, institutions, organizations and citizens worlds for the protection of the earth, which is the greatest asset of our planet.

The land has been damaged and continues to be heavily damaged due to two main factors: unfavorable climate conditions and harmful human activity. So today the appeal for everyone is to do everything for the protection of the earth, for both today’s and future generations of the globe.

In the framework of this day’s celebration, MedAlb Institut and Bioplant Albania organized the planting of several trees in the Sharri Landfill facilities, Tirana.
