Rely on forests to prevent climate change


“Forests and Innovation: New Solutions for a Better World”, set as a theme for 2024, marking the International Day of Forests, becomes a prominent drive for mitigating environmental degradation based on climate change and global warming.
Currently, the towns of Myanmar and Thailand, which are close to the borderline of both countries, are suffering from the terrible impacts of air pollution to a high degree. So, both countries are seeking the best ways to solve such issues and lessen the threats to the health conditions of the people in time. Similar problems occur across the world.
Innovation and technology have transformed forest monitoring, enabling nations to track and report on their forests with greater precision. Transparent and innovative forest monitoring efforts have resulted in the reporting of 13.7 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide emission reductions or enhancements to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
The fight against deforestation necessitates cutting-edge technological solutions. Globally, 10 million hectares of forest are lost annually due to deforestation, with approximately 70 million hectares affected by fires. These innovations are crucial for implementing early warning systems, promoting sustainable commodity production, and empowering ethnic communities through land mapping and access to climate finance.
According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, nearly half of Myanmar’s land area is covered by forests. Despite timber extraction, successive governments have prioritized the establishment of forest plantations and commercial teak plantations in collaboration with the private sector.
In line with global efforts, Myanmar is committed to ecosystem restoration, including reforestation, which can significantly contribute to climate mitigation and enhance food security while promoting sustainable wood products. The vital role of forests in mitigating the impacts of phenomena like El Niño is now widely acknowledged.
Efforts to address environmental challenges require global cooperation and innovative solutions. It is imperative for nations to prioritize forest preservation and restoration efforts to safeguard the well-being of current and future generations. The 2024 International Day of Forests serves as a poignant reminder of the importance of forests in fostering a sustainable and resilient world.
If so, global countries have to make concerted efforts to directly or indirectly reduce the impacts of climate change. Consequently, relieving climate change will help save the lives of global peoples as well as grant the lives of new generations. As such, global peoples are to disseminate their knowledge about nurturing and protecting forests to new generations with farsightedness to prevent deterioration of the planet Earth as much as possible.
