Islamabad: Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif Tuesday formally launched countrywide spring tree plantation campaign in Islamabad.

Speaking on the occasion, the Prime Minister appealed the entire nation to actively participate in the tree plantation campaign to secure the future of our coming generations, adding that during this campaign two hundred and forty million trees will be planted across the country.

Shehbaz Sharif stressed for enhancing the country's forest cover to meet with the negative impacts of climate change.

“The recent devastating floods which inflicted a loss of thirty billion dollars to the economy and displaced millions of people has further highlighted the significance of forests,” he stated.

The premier added that we will have to take practical steps for environment protection and enhance green areas in the urban areas, stressing to enhance awareness at educational institutions and seminaries in this regard.
