Cuban FM urges to preserve life on World Environment Day

Havana, Jun 5 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez on Saturday called to reinforce the commitments to preserve life on the planet on World Environment Day.

In a message posted on Twitter, the head of Cuban diplomacy recalled the United Nations’ appeal to work against environmental degradation in the next decade.

Unless we rehabilitate one billion hectares of degraded land in ten years, environmental destruction and pollution will take accelerated steps forwards, the UN warned, Rodriguez tweeted.

According to the UN website, the onset of Covid-19 also demonstrated disastrous consequences for the loss of ecosystems.

Faced with this great problem, the World Environment Day focuses on the restoration of the ecosystem and its theme is Reimagine, Recreate, Restore.

This World Environment Day will kick off the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030), which is a global mission to revive billions of hectares, from forests to farmlands, from the top of mountains to the depth of the sea.
