The international theme of this year’s World Environment Day “ONLY ONE EARTH” calls for transformative changes to policies and choices to enable cleaner, greener and sustainable living in harmony with nature.

Our country is experiencing massive deforestation, plastic pollution of our towns, streams and rivers, unsustainable solid and liquid waste management and oil pollution in the oil producing areas.

South Sudan will be celebrating this year’s World Environment day under the Local theme/slogan “Save Environment Save Lives” Environment plays an important role in healthy living and the existence of life on planet earth; Healthy ecosystems clean our water, purify our air, maintain our soil, regulate the climate, recycle nutrients and provide us with food.

Earth is a home for different living species and we all are dependent on the environment for food, air, water, and other needs. Therefore, it is important for every individual to save and protect our environment.

The Ministry of Environment and Forestry will commemorate this with a series of activities namely: massive cleaning campaigns, planting of trees, awareness raising talk shows that will be culminated by a celebration and the launching of the National Determined Contributions document, the National Adaptation plan and the Rapid Assessment of the State of the Sudd Wetlands report on June 30th 2022 at the Freedom hall.
