Taking to Twitter, the Prime Minister posted a video clip of Matta, in Swat, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, saying that barren hills in the area were being turned into green owing to the Billion Tree Tsunami campaign in the province.

 “Matta in Swat – Barren hills turning green. Incredible results from our Billion Tree Tsunami campaign in Khyber Pukhtunkhwa. InshaAllah, we will leave a clean and green Pakistan for future generations,” the premier wrote.

Earlier on June 27, the Prime Minister urged the people of Pakistan to gear up for the biggest tree planting campaign in history. “I want all Pakistanis, especially our youth, to gear up for the biggest tree planting campaign in our history. We have a lot of catching up to do,” he said on Twitter.

On June 3, PM Imran said Pakistan must achieve the target of planting 10 billion trees to protect future generations and play its due role in mitigating global warming. “Pakistan is among the 10 most vulnerable countries with regard to global warming,” he added.

“The country must play its part in saving the world from global warming,” the PM said, urging to grow more national forests, increasing the number of trees and investing in urban forestry.
