The International Day for Biodiversity is celebrated every year on 22 May and coordinated by the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), part of the United Nations Environment Programme. This observance commemorates the adoption of the text of the CBD on 22 May 1992 and provides a unique opportunity to generate support for the Convention, its Protocols and related action frameworks.

Governments, indigenous peoples and local communities, non-governmental organizations, lawmakers, businesses, and individuals are being encouraged to highlight the ways in which they are supporting the implementation of the Biodiversity Plan.
