Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan launched the Spring 2019 tree plantation drive as part of the 10 billion tree tsunami on Sunday.
Khan had announced the 10 billion tree initiative last year, soon after he took office.
We are launching our #Plant4Pakistan programme & reclaiming mafia encroached land, converting it into forests and wild life parks for our future generations to fight climate change and pollution. pic.twitter.com/yCaaahr2uB— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) February 9, 2019
The tree planting drive is part of the Pakistani ‘Prime Minister’s special initiatives’.
The day will be marked across the country with several Pakistanis participating in the drive.
Earlier this month, Pakistan’s Ministry of Climate Change signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the National Rural Support Programme (NRSP) to use drone technology to plant millions of trees.
In September last year, Khan kicked off a one-day ‘Plant for Pakistan’ drive, with the aim of planting 10 billion trees in five years.
