Nonviolence Incorporation Publishes Statement on World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought

On the World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought, Nonviolence Incorporation published a statement, in which it said:

Almighty God has said in the Holy Quran: “The dead land is a sign for them. We revive it, and from it produce grain from which they eat.” [36:33]

Coinciding with June 17th, the international community in one voice celebrates the World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought, to remind humanity of the environmental threats caused by overexploitation and inappropriate land use as well as the temperature inversion, which has sped up the process of desertification of lands and drought all across the world.

The agricultural sectors around the world are faced with diminishing reservoirs of water. Terrorism, violence, extremism, immigration, and the spread of epidemic diseases have caused so many damages on all human societies and the planet we live on. It is while that desertification and its repercussions could be avoided, if these issues were not politicized and were addressed objectively.

Nonviolence Incorporation calls on all world leaders to engage this issue and offer their practical solutions to the desertification of lands, so as to stop this dangerous process and ensure the basic life standards for all human beings on this planet, regardless of their faith, color of skin, and nationality.

Scientific approaches to providing water for the agricultural sectors, as well as promoting planting trees are among the best ways to tackle the issue of desertification. Therefore, all countries need to come up with scientific and modern strategies to manage their water reservoir, in order to stop desertification of land in all parts of the world
