March 21, International Day of Forests

A week of great events. Today we celebrate Father’s Day, while Thursday, March 21 will mark the beginning of spring and International Forest Day. From
we want to get ahead of this date to raise awareness about the importance of caring for and preserving all forest areas of the planet and, thus, the survival of all species that inhabit the forest.

Under the slogan
“Forests and innovation: new solutions for a better world
“this year’s focus is on the importance of technology for forest control and monitoring. Thanks to technological innovation, it is possible to better monitor forests and thus improve the fight against deforestation. It is important to remember that 10 million hectares of forest are lost every year due to gradual disappearance and fires.

Importance of forests for human beings

Forests are fundamental ecosystems for life on Earth. They are home to a great diversity of plant, animal and insect species, making them one of the most important sources of biodiversity on our planet. In addition, they play a crucial role in climate regulation, air and water purification, and prevention of soil erosion.

In addition, forests provide innumerable benefits to human beings. These include the production of oxygen and air purification. Forests represent the lungs of the entire Earth. Trees are known for their ability to produce oxygen through photosynthesis, a process vital to life on Earth. They also contribute significantly to air purification by absorbing carbon dioxide and other atmospheric pollutants.

Another important aspect is that they harbor a diversity of wildlife, providing crucial habitat for countless species of plants, animals and insects. These forest ecosystems are fundamental for the ecological balance and preservation of biodiversity.

Forests are an inexhaustible source of natural resources, including timber, food, medicinal plants….. They also play a crucial role in climate regulation. They help maintain climate stability by influencing precipitation patterns, reducing soil erosion and mitigating the effects of climate change.

What are the dangers of deforestation for humanity? It represents a serious threat to humanity. Large-scale logging leads to loss of biodiversity, soil degradation, reduction of freshwater sources and the emission of large amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, contributing to climate change. In addition, deforestation can increase the risk of flooding and desertification, endangering the lives of forest-dependent human communities.
