International Day of the Tropics
History of the day:
The inaugural State of the Tropics Report was launched on 29 June 2014 as the fruits of a collaboration between twelve leading tropical research institutions. The record presents a special standpoint on this increasingly more important region. Marking the anniversary of the launch of report, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) adopted decision A/RES/70/267 in 2016, which declared that 29 June of every year is to be found as the International Day of the Tropics.
