Pakistan unveils one of the most ambitious forest project of the World
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan has reaffirmed its commitment to play its due role in combating climate crisis, protecting biological diversity and restoring ecosystem.
In a statement today, Foreign Office spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhari said hosting of World Environment Day 2021 in Islamabad is an acknowledgment of Pakistan's swift transition towards a "clean and green" Pakistan.
He said Pakistan is already in the midst of one of the world's most ambitious efforts to expand and restore its forests, having already planted a billion trees as part of its 10 Billion Tree Tsunami Project.
The FO spokesperson said it is high time for the international community to translate political commitments on combating climate change and environmental degradation into tangible actions.
He said that for developing countries like Pakistan, this would not be possible without provision of sufficient support by developed partners in the form of means of implementation: green finance, technology transfer, and capacity building.
