International Biological Diversity: History & Significance

The International Day for Biological Diversity (IDB) was established in 1993 by the United Nations General Assembly. The IDB is celebrated annually on 22 May to increase understanding and awareness of biodiversity issues. The IDB was established in response to the growing concern about the loss of biodiversity. Biodiversity is essential for human life and well-being. It provides us with food, shelter, and other essential resources. It also regulates our climate, purifies our water, and enriches our cultural heritage.

The IDB provides an important opportunity to refocus our attention on the urgent need to protect biodiversity. By investing in conservation and restoration projects, we can support the recovery of ecosystems and promote the emergence of new species.
