Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Climate Change Malik Amin Aslam says an overarching strategy for launching nation-wide spring tree plantation campaign has been formulated in consultation with all provincial forest departments.
According to a press release, Amin Aslam said Prime Minister Imran Khan is expected to kick-start spring tree plantation campaign-2022 on Tuesday.
He said we have set a whopping target of planting over 540 million plants all over the country during the spring season under PM Imran Khan’s Ten Billion Tree Tsunami Programme.
Amin Aslam said all-out efforts should be taken to take full benefit from the ongoing spring season by planting saplings on a large-scale in the country.
Highlighting the importance of forests, Malik Amin Aslam stressed that highly climate-vulnerable Pakistan cannot cope with climate risks which have become increasingly frequent due to global warming impacts without increasing tree cover.
