World Environment Day - Raise Your Voice, Not the Sea Level

Bahrain Celebrates Islands

Bahrain has joined the other nations in marking WED. UNEP held a ceremony at the Bahrain City Centre in partnership with the Supreme Council for the Environment and sponsored by the business sector, namely the Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company (GPIC). The event was attended by hundreds of people and aimed at enhancing awareness and highlighting the threats endangering small islands and islets. The WED celebration in West Asia encouraged a greater understanding of the importance of SIDS and of the urgency to help protect the islands in the face of growing risks and vulnerabilities, particularly as a result of climate change.
