In recognition of the life and sustenance that the planet and its ecosystems provide to the earth's inhabitants, International Mother Earth Day is observed on 22 April each year.

The United Nations marked the day for the third time in New York on Wednesday with an inter-active dialogue entitled "Harmony with Nature".

The forum was hosted by the General Assembly as part of its on-going preparations for the Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development to be held in Brazil in June.
