ISLAMABAD: Pakistan will host World Environment Day 2021 globally for the first time in history with Prime Minister Imran Khan heading a climate change conference on June 04 to highlight the country’s effective policy in this regard, ARY NEWS reported.

This year’s observance of World Environment Day with the collaboration of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) will be on the theme of ‘ecosystem restoration’ and focus on resetting our relationship with nature. It will also mark the formal launch of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration 2021 – 2030.
