The International Mountain Day-2019 will be observed on Wednesday (today) in the country like elsewhere across the world aiming to increase attention to the importance of mountains, which are home of 15 percent of the world's population and a quarter of the world's land animals and plants.
The theme of the day is "Mountains Matter for Youth".
The day is being observed since 2003 after the UN declaration of International Year of Mountains came in 2002 under the phenomenon that unfortunately mountains are under threat from climate change and overexploitation.
This year, the youth will take the lead and demand that mountains and mountain peoples become central in the national and international development agendas, receive more attention, investments and tailored research.     -BSS
