Ecosystem Restoration – Need of the hour

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children- Native American Proverb

Ecosystem healing method supporting with inside the recuperation of ecosystems that have been degraded or destroyed, in addition to preserving the ecosystems which are nonetheless intact. Ecosystem Restoration was the theme for World Environment Day 2021. We and our planet are only healthy if our ecosystem is healthy. To make our survival healthy, there is a prime need for plantation of trees, cleaning of river banks, efforts to enrich biodiversity, change of diets, rewilding of gardens, and green cities. If today’s generation continuously wrecked the ecosystem then it not possible or desirable to return an ecosystem to its original state. Perhaps farmland and infrastructure on land that was once forest, for instance, and ecosystem, like societies need to adapt to changing climate. Nature recovers if the pressure removes.

The main goal of this day is to raise awareness about the importance of the environment and to remind people that nature should not be taken for granted. According to the United Nations, this day provides a chance to extend the basis for informed opinion and responsible behavior by communities, businesses, and individuals in the preservation and enhancement of the environment. Ecosystem restoration is an initiative taken by UNEP to accelerate ecosystem recovery. The ecosystem may not be necessarily recovered to its former state since contemporary ecological realities, including global climate change, may cause it to develop along an altered trajectory just as these same realities may have changed the trajectory of nearby undisturbed ecosystems. History plays an important role in restoration, but contemporary conditions may also be taken into consideration. This restoration aims to re-establish a self-organizing ecosystem on an initial trajectory of recovery relatively quickly, full recovery of ecosystems can take years, decades, or even hundreds of years. And this year United Nations aims to construct the thought of- Reimagine, Recreate and Restore.

The annually celebrated World Environment Day across the globe marks the importance of nature and the environment. The theme for 2021 was Ecosystem Restoration and it will be hosted by Pakistan. As the Government of Pakistan is fully committed to playing a leadership role inaddressing the issue of climate change, including through the 10 Billion Tree Tsunami initiative, which will restore and enhance over 1 million hectares of forest across their country. Ecosystem Restoration Fund to support nature-based solutions to climate change and facilitation of the transition towards ecologically targeted initiatives covering afforestation and biodiversity conservation had been launched. Recently, the Prime Minister of Pakistan took a spunk to acquire 15 model protected areas across their country to conserve over 7300 sq. Km of land area and create over 5500 green jobs. As host of the World Environment Day, Pakistan will highlight environmental issues and showcase the country’s own spunks and its role in universal efforts. This day is celebrated in line with the latest COVID-19 regulations. Last year, we faced multiple crises, including global pandemic and continued crises of climate, nature and pollution. This year we take a pledge that we must take deliberate steps to move from crisis to healing and in so doing, we must recognize the survival of our planet and the human race.

The UN Decade runs from 2021 through 2030, which is also referred to as the deadline of Sustainable Development Goals. United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Food and Agriculture Organizations (FAO) of the United Nations together with the support of partners, pretense an initiative to restore the ecosystem at the global level. Both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems revived and their loss will be reversed and these ecosystems will be prevented. This aim creates global action. Political support, scientific research, and financial support are much needed to scale up this restoration. UN Decade is in invigorate a universal movement, in which each individual of this globe contributes.

We all are well aware that celebrating World Environment Day once in a yearly activity, but it doesn’t mean that we should always listen to the atmosphere solely on it in the future. Regardless of the day, organization, event, country, theme — conserving nature is our responsibility. The first and foremost thing one should have to do is to modify their lifestyle. See however we are able to live higher with nature and build very little alterations in our daily life. Then educate the people, because this cannot be done alone; notwithstanding we have a tendency to are able to produce awareness for a little minority of individuals, it will produce a world of distinction. One must respect multifariousness and nature as it plays a crucial role in providing ecological services that build life liveable on Earth.

Every species, notwithstanding however massive or little, contains an impressive impact on the scheme. We must ensure that our business is allowed and in compliance with all environmental laws. Everyone should support native conservation efforts. Last but not the least, let’s become a global voice in the environment and make this year’s theme our personal theme to improve the quality of life without any compromise for our upcoming generations. We can’t go back in time. We can, however, plant trees, green our cities, rewild our gardens, alter our diets, and clean up our rivers and coastline. We are the generation that will be able to live in harmony with the environment. Let’s get moving instead of worrying. In a word, the 3R’s Reimagine, Recreate, and Restore is the need of the hour and we are well known that our quality of life is entirely dependent on the quality of the environment in which we live.
