The International Day for Biological Diversity was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly on December 20, 2000 (Resolution A/RES/55/201) and is celebrated annually on May 22, the day of the adoption of the agreed text of the Convention on Biological Diversity.

In September 2015, the UN member States adopted the new 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It includes 17 major Sustainable development goals (SDGs). Stopping the loss of biodiversity and promoting the sustainable use of ecosystems were included in Goal 15.

The problem of preserving biological diversity occupies an important place in the environmental policy of the Republic of Belarus. Our state is aware of the importance of combining international efforts in solving globally significant environmental problems of the world. Belarus ratified the Convention on Biological Diversity in June 1993. Promising priority areas for the implementation of the Convention were identified in the "National Strategy and Action Plan for the Conservation and Sustainable Use of Biological Diversity of the Republic of Belarus". The Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection and other interested State bodies are constantly working on the areas outlined in the National Strategy.
