AMN / NEW DELHI

UNION Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar has said that every day is an environment day for India. He said trees, animals, and birds have always been revered in India.

Mr Javadekar has said that India is one of the few countries where forest cover has actually increased in the last decade. He said the forest and tree cover in the country has reached 24.56 per cent of the geographic area which is spread over eight lakh square kilometres. He said, India has increased its forest and tree cover by 15 thousand square kilometres in the last six years.

The Union Environment Minister further said, substantial increase in the population of big cats in the last seven years reflects the Government’s commitment towards conservation of wildlife and environment.

Highlighting the other initiatives of the government, the Environment Minister has said, phase-two of the FAME India scheme is being implemented with budgetary support of 10 thousand crore rupees to facilitate and enhance electric mobility.

Every year on 5th of June, people around the globe observe World Environment Day to raise awareness about the importance of nature and to inspire positive change towards the environment.

On the occasion, President Ram Nath Kovind said, as humanity fights against COVID-19, we reaffirm our commitment to work with global community for a sustainable future.

Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu has called upon everyone to intensify the efforts to protect and restore the degrading ecosystems.

On World Environment Day, Home Minister Amit Shah said, the Modi government has done an unprecedented job of bringing awareness in the society with many efforts in this direction.

The theme of this year’s World Environment Day is ‘Reimagine. Recreate. Restore.’ as this year marks the beginning of the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.
