The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government has introduced multiple campaigns and drives to combat climate change, including the Billion Tree Tsunami and Clean and Green Pakistan.
Earlier this month, the premier said that the billion tree campaign was yielding incredible results as he posted a short video of the ‘barren hills in Swat turning green’.
“Matta in Swat – Barren hills turning green. Incredible results from our Billion Tree Tsunami campaign in Khyber Pukhtunkhwa,” the premier said, adding, “InshaAllah we will leave a clean and green Pakistan for future generations.”
On June 27, the premier urged the nation to gear up for the biggest tree planting campaign in our history. “I want all Pakistanis, esp our youth, to gear up for the biggest tree planting campaign in our history,” the premier said
“We have a lot of catching up to do and we will be gearing up this monsoon season for our plantation drive – the biggest in Pakistan’s history,” he added.
