The federal Ministry of Climate Change has achieved the plantation target of sowing and re-growing over 1.9 billion plants this year, under Ten Billion Tree Tsunami Plantation project.

This flagship project was initiated in 2018 with the vision to implement the largest ever plantation target in the country to restore its depleting forests, revive green cover, and improve natural resources.

An official of the Ministry told APP that the plants were planted across the country with equal contribution of the federal and provincial governments.

He said the plantation in Gilgit Baltistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir was fully funded by the federal government.
