The Ministry of Climate Change has launched a new ‘April Cool campaign’ in a bid to motivate people to plant more trees in Pakistan. The initiative was launched on 31st March with the intent to motivate people to plant trees across Pakistan in the month of April.

The new campaign is the part of the Clean and Green Pakistan movement-an initiative launched by Prime Minister Imran Khan on September 2, 2018, to tackle pollution and global warming impacts in Pakistan. The posters for April Cool campaign has been shared on the official Twitter account of Clean and Green Pakistan and 10 billion Tree Tsunami Project #Plant4Pak.

As the summers are approaching the Pakistan Meteorological Department has predicted for hot summers and sweltering high temperatures this year in Pakistan while Karachi has particularly been under the hot weather for past few days. Hence, the Ministry of Climate Change has requested people to celebrate April Cool instead of April Fool’s Day by planting more trees throughout the month.

“Instead of making #AprilFools let’s plant trees and make it #AprilCool for a greener, better future” tweeted CleanGreen Pakistan.

He stated, “From nurseries to full forest areas, the success of the Billion Tree Tsunami has been unprecedented with public & Pvt involvement. Has given us the confidence to take the initiative to 10 bn trees. KP’s forest cover has increased by 4%, contributing to the fight against climate change.”

The PTI-led government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa initiated the tree plantation drive in 2013 to tackle the climatic change since Pakistan has been listed amongst the top six countries to be adversely affected by the weather changes in the coming years.

Meanwhile, the latest satellite images released by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) shows that Pakistan is the fastest greening country in the world due to the recent reforestation projects including the Billion Tree Tsunami initiative taken by premier Imran Khan.
