This year the theme is Biodiversity for Sustainable Development and is said to reflect the importance of efforts made at all levels to establish a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as part of the United Nations Post-2015 Development Agenda for the period of 2015-2030.
To celebrate the day, the Union for Ethical BioTrade (UEBT) has decided to prepare a special infographic to raise awareness about the importance of biodiversity and its respect.
