“Don’t let our Future Dry up”
Twenty (20) students of the Monchy Combined School played their part to plant approximately 63 trees in observance of World Day to Combat Desertification (WDCD) on Monday, June 17, 2013,. The theme for WDCD 2013 is Drought and Water Scarcity, while the slogan is “Don’t let our future dry up”. According to the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification the slogan calls for everyone to take action to promote preparedness and resilience to water scarcity, desertification and drought. The slogan embodies the message that we are all responsible for water and land conservation, and their sustainable use, and that there are solutions to these serious natural resource challenges. Land degradation does not have to threaten our future.
