KPK Government Completes Its Billion Trees Tsunami Project The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has successfully accomplished the commitment of growing one billion trees in the shortest possible time of three years.
According to sources, 'Billion Trees Tsunami
' project was initiated by Imran Khan and started in November 2014, as a response to challenge global warming.
It was reported that by late 2017, the Tsunami
goal had been met and the project surpassed its aims significantly by restoring and planting trees across 348,000 hectares of despoiled forest landscapes in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
The project is naturally restoring a previously deforested landscape, which will also assist in meeting the present and future needs and offers multiple benefits for climate adaptation and mitigation.
It has paved way for smooth transformation of current economic growth model to green economy.
The project has also been recognised globally in the fight against climate change hazards.
