International Tropics Day

July 29, 2020
International days are days that are set aside to educate the public on issues of concern, to mobilize political will and resources to address global problems, and to celebrate and reinforce achievements of humanity.

The International day of Tropics is a day set aside to celebrate the incredible diversity of the tropics while emphasizing the challenges and opportunities 'Tropical' nations face.

The Tropics are a region of the Earth, roughly defined as the area between the tropic of Cancer and the tropic of Capricorn. Although topography and other factors contribute to climatic variation, tropical locations are typically warm and experience little seasonal change in day-to-day temperature. An important feature of the Tropics is the prevalence of rain in the moist inner regions near the equator, and that the seasonality of rainfall increases with the distance from the equator. The tropical region faces several challenges such as climate change, deforestation, logging, urbanization and demographic changes.

According to the UN, the Tropics have greater than 50% of the world’s renewable water.

This year the international tropics day seeks to reiterate that urbanization, local weather change, and demographic adjustments are some of the greater obstacles that hugely affect the survival of the Tropics. The International Day of The Tropics is a stern reminder to us all, as to how a lot vital the area is.
