The government would make the tree plantation campaign successful by mobilizing the youth: Malik Ameen Aslam

LAHORE: Secretary Ministry of Climate change Malik Amin Aslam said that the government is formulating a plan to plant 10 billion trees across the country followed by the successful project of PTI ‘Billion Tree Tsunami’ in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) during its last tenure.

Malik Ameen said, “After the 18th amendment, the federal government has to make collaboration with provincial governments for forestry campaign. The previous government had devised a framework in this regard and planted 100 million trees with a cost of Rs.36 per sapling which was much higher than the cost of KPK government’s cost of Rs.12 per sapling”.

The advisor said, “The nation has the ability to do anything with determination if it becomes aware properly on any issue, adding that now the youth has made tree plantation as a cause”.  He mentioned:

The nation had planted 2.5 million saplings during one day ‘Plant for Pakistan’ campaign against the set target of 1.5 million

Amin Aslam added,

forests have an unprecedented role in the overall environmental development and climate resilience against disasters.

The government would make all-out efforts along with provinces to resolve environmental and water issues.

According to the latest global Environmental Performance Index (EPI) rankings released on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos states that massive populations still suffer from poor air quality.

The report says that Pakistan stands at 169 in EPI among 180 countries on 24 performance indicators across 10 issue categories covering environmental health and ecosystem vitality.

Nowadays, our country is facing so much pollution and trees can make our environment perfect again. Trees contribute to environment by providing oxygen, improving air quality, climate amelioration, conserving water, preserving soil, and supporting wildlife.

In these days of austerity and relative stress about running into debt, many people balk resistant to the idea of making use of a credit card in order to make acquisition of merchandise and also pay for a holiday, preferring, instead just to rely on a tried as well as trusted means of making transaction – cash.
