One of my greatest beliefs is that tourism is the most sustainable industries which feed our economy, even with very little government effort, interest and investment. We are reaping big in the form of government revenue through taxes, GDP figures, Foreign Exchange, job creation; with very little prioritization from the government. Imagine if we did it more deliberately?
It’s because of the thunderous falls in this park that the Government of uganda is trying to put up a Hydroelectricity Dam ! Which we as Environmentalists and Tourism lovers have decided to use all our resources and power to save this national park from destructions.
World Environment Day (WED) was formally designated by the United Nations Environment Programme on 5 June 1972, the opening day of the first World Environment Conference in Stockholm, and the first World Environment Day was held in 1974. Since then, nearly 150 countries have been involved every year, with activities that range from raising awareness for environmental protection to encouraging action for recycling, sustainable development and consumption, fighting global warming, cleaning up pollution and many other issues. UN Environment has aided in the formulation of guidelines and treaties on issues such as the international trade in potentially harmful chemicals, trans-boundary air pollution, and contamination of international waterways.
As the world gets hotter as a result of climate change and more crowded because of the ever growing world population, our engines and industrial plants continue to pump out dirty emissions in the earth’s atmosphere, while residential biomass burning is becoming the lead contributor to disease burden in low income communities – due to lack of access to clean fuels or technologies. The very air we breathe is growing dangerously polluted – nine of out of ten people now breathe polluted air, which kills 7 million people every. According to the World Health organization (WHO), climate change could potentially increase the number of deaths from air pollution by hundreds of thousands between 2030 and 2050.
The World Environment Day 2019 will be celebrated globally under the theme “Air Pollution”. The theme urges governments, industry, communities, and individuals to come together to explore renewable energy, green technologies and improvement of air quality in cities and regions across the world. The Global celebrations will be hosted by China.
The national celebration will be hosted by Moroto District Local Government on Wednesday, 5th June 2019 under the National theme “Fight air pollution to Protect Human Life and the Environment”.
