Pakistan will host the “World Environment Day” on the 5th June and showcase the steps it has taken to deal with the issue of climate change.
This has been stated by the Prime Minister Imran Khan while addressing a ceremony in connection with Ten Billion Tree Tsunami Program in Haripur on Thursday.
On the occasion, Imran Kha has said that this is also a mark of recognition that Pakistan is amongst the few countries which is taking serious measures to cope with the challenge of global warming. He said Pakistan is unfortunately amongst the ten countries which are most vulnerable to climate change.
The Prime Minister further stated that the melting of glaciers at a rapid pace pose a challenge to Pakistan. He said our efforts are directed towards providing a better and secured future to our coming generations.
“The government has embarked upon a series of projects including that of Ten Billion Tree Tsunami, national parks’ establishment and restoration of wetlands and wildlife to achieve that objective. These projects will also provide job opportunities to the people and contribute to the promotion of tourism,” he added.
The Premier was confident that the very impact of climate change can be reversed provided there is a will.
