World Day to Combat Desertification

Enhancing soils anywhere, enhances life everywhere

There is a close relationship between livelihood, ecosystem wellbeing and soils that are rich in biodiversity. Healthy soils produce life, and yet soil health depends a lot on how individuals use their land. What we do to our soils determines the quality and quantity of the food we eat and how our ecosystems serve us. Our increasing ecological interdependence also means enhancing soils anywhere enhances life everywhere. Where well tended, soil biodiversity will be a resource for use by future generations, and for services that are yet to be discovered.

In 1994, the United Nations General Assembly declared June 17 the World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought to promote public awareness of the issue, and the implementation of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) in those countries experiencing serious drought and/or desertification, particularly in Africa.

About World Day to Combat Desertification

In 1994, the United Nations General Assembly declared June 17 the "World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought" to promote public awareness of the issue, and the implementation of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification in Those Countries Experiencing Serious Drought and/or Desertification, Particularly in Africa.

Ever since, country Parties to the Convention, organizations of the United Nations System, international and non-governmental organizations and other interested stakeholders have celebrated this particular day with a series of outreach activities worldwide.

The Convention is the only internationally recognized, legally binding instrument that addresses the problem of land degradation in dryland. It enjoys a truly universal membership of 193 Parties.

The World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought is a unique occasion to remind everybody that desertification can be effectively tackled, that solutions are possible, and that key tools to this aim lay in strengthened community participation and co-operation at all levels.

Country Parties and civil society organizations are invited to organize events to celebrate the World Day to Combat Desertification as an additional opportunity to increase awareness raising and participation in the process.

Birthday Philanthropist

Billionaires plus
Bill & Melinda Gates with Warren Buffet started "Giving Pledge", a movement of philanthropists who commit to give the majority of their wealth to charitable causes, either during their lifetimes or in their wills.

As of June 2022, there are 236 pledges from 28 countries.

Millionaires plus
LivingMyPromise started by Venkar Krishnan is a community of like-minded Indians who believe in giving back to society. It invites advantaged people to commit to giving 50% or more of their wealth to philanthropic causes either during their lifetime or in their will.


Billions of people
Founder thinks not more than few million people are billionaires or Millionaires in money terms.

But in terms of giving Rs 10/- a day (Rs 3650/- per year) or USD 50 a year is not something which is far difficult. It is far simpler than a question paper at school or college.

So he starts a movement from 8.8.2022 when he completes 60 years of his existance on earth.

Sanjay Kumud Moreswhar Bapat, founder, has started donating Rs 3650/- in 2018 on birthdays of
His parents : Aai & Bhau
His wife : Rohini
Elder son : Rohan
(Who has disability of sensory integration and is founder's teacher on integration)
Younger son : Aum
(He is a medical doctor)
His birthday and
28th August (day on which Bhau & others postponed his death).

He has committed to donate Rs 100 000/- on his 60 years existance on earth on 8.8.22 to 4 charities. One each managed by Christain, Hindu & Muslim and 4th one is to Paradhi Samaj (Life is their religion)

CSRidentity.com knows that people can give small amounts easily if they know NGOs which can make impace of donations given to them.

So we plan to share 100 000 NGO Brands supported by corporates, foundations, funding agencies, philanthropists, celebrities as well as those whose trustees are experienced in corporates or funding agencies or those started by founders who got fellowship like Ashoka or organisations which gives fellowships in minimum 25 countries. We will have them from 150 countries by 31.3.2024 and if the response is good for the world, then we may increase it to 200000 NGO Brands, And yes, give them directly.

We are happy if development happens without us.

Of course, we get satisfaction as commission to us because we think founder's death was postponed on 28.8.2013 because he has not served Mother Earth enough.

And he knows instead of actually working, promoting those who address social, climate & health challenges in different countries is better because it is not only faster but has a reach out across the world and also it serves the larger purpose of being climate positive person..

Donation can be
blood donation
time donation
talent donation
money donation.

Founder will start approaching corporate HR teams to give 2 hours official leave to employees so that they can use that time to donate blood or talent or time.

And if they have missed giving on their birthday, they can either prepone or postpone the day because the idea you must think that you have got birth from parents for a larger purpose than just living & leaving life . So the idea is give and be a retail philanthropist at least on one day of the year.

And if you think that the purpose of giving is larger than just one charity, then give it to Developed Nation Network Trust indicating that the donation is for NGOs across the world know the Guidelines on fund raising or succession planning or branding through advertising and PR or financial planning or Human Resource management or using latest technology to save time as well as make greater impact.

We will approach corporates in different countries with purpose of their top management or board, sitting at home or in office and investing just 7 hours in their life to share guidlines for managements of NGOs on issues they face but they dont invest time in addressing them because they are too busy in addressing challenges of communities like on topics like HR practices, Capacity building or Insurance of the social workers or PR in terms of communicating with corporates, funding agencies, philanthropists, government, communities, media ...and of course succession planning.

And we are making this digital knowledge bank centre from Thane, making it a global knowledge centre of the world.

And yes, we will share it with few real life examples like
1) blood donation
2) excercise open gym for senior citizens
3) place where senior citizens can tell stories to children
4) place where senior citizens can visit hostel for disabled or orphans or even for senior citizens.

And finally founder is not self centred and while he knows that "Health is Wealth" is not a proverb but reality, he like all humans will leave the world.

And he has no right to say that no one can kill or murder him because if one can murder or assasinate Shinzo Abe, who was Honourable PM of Japan, then almost 8 billion people can be killed for any purpose.

His end is not world's end.
And he doesnt want to see world's end because of climate negativity of people on earth.
