Khyber Pakhtunkhwa: According to new sources, Prime Minister Imran Khan reaffirmed his commitment to combat climate change and reverse its negative impacts in Pakistan on Thursday.
The Prime Minister made these words during a ceremony commemorating the ‘Ten Billion Tree Tsunami Programme.’ PM also planted the billionth tree at the Makhniyal forest at the ceremony, marking a major milestone given that the first tree was planted there in September 2018.
The environmental preservation project, according to Mr Khan, focuses on the expansion and rehabilitation of the country’s forests. It also encompasses urban places where tree planting is encouraged, such as colleges, schools, greenbelts, and public parks.
All attempts to reduce the impact of global warming and climate change, according to the PM, are for future generations. He further claimed that Dera Ismail (DI) Khan’s flooded land had been changed into a jungle. Birds and wildlife have returned to the area as a result, and people’s livelihoods have improved.
The Prime Minister announced on the occasion that Pakistan will host a World Environment Day on June 5. The event will highlight Pakistan’s efforts to address environmental challenges such as pollution and global warming.
