In 2016 the State of the Tropics Alliance welcomed the United Nations decision to declare 29th June as the International Day of the Tropics. The initiative was spearheaded by the Australian Government in close collaboration with State of the Tropics alliance.

The International Day of the Tropics provides an opportunity to take stock of progress across the tropics, share tropical stories and celebrate the diversity and potential of the region.
