Green and Clean Pakistan:
It is painfully clear that climate change is already having an
effect on human rights. And that this effect will only grow in the
PAKISTAN IN LEAVING TOWARDS……
The rate of deforestation in Pakistan has been sharply accelerated and the World Wide Fund Report warns that if the current pattern of deforestation is not controlled, the country will not be able to fulfill its international commitments under the MDGs to raise its forest cover from 2.5 per cent to 6 per cent by 2015 68 per cent. Pakistan is a case in point, as it lies at the geographical crossroads of melting glaciers, unpredictably changing monsoons and intensified disaster activity caused by climate change. Despite Pakistan’s diminutive contribution to global greenhouse gas emissions, we are the fifth most
climate-impacted nation in the world, according to the Germanwatch Global Climate Risk Index, 2020.
My Government remains completely committed to playing a
leading role in tackling climate change and moving towards a
“clean and green” Pakistan through a well-articulated climate
change agenda consisting of a range of flagship initiatives on the
Prime Minister Imran Khan calls climate change a “defining
global challenge” of our time.
What can we do?
My theory is that I will start growing plants and Trees. Trees and
plants are one of the key reasons that mankind has come into
being. The value of planting trees has been stressed time and
time again. This is because of the many benefits they provide.
They’re making the planet a better place to live in. They exhale
oxygen and inhale carbon dioxide to maintain the ecological
balance of the system. They also consume all the toxic gasses and
give us fresh air to breathe. Trees are constructing a sheet to
shield us from harmful ultraviolet rays. Indoor plants increase
focus and efficiency (by up to 15%!), minimize stress levels and
raise our mood. Trees help in controlling water pollution and
preventing soil erosion. Trees minimize urban runoff and
flooding by storing water and breaking down rainfall. The USDA
estimates that 100 mature trees will minimize runoff due to
rainfall by up to 100,000 gallons! Trees also absorb noise and
minimize noise emissions. This is particularly important for
people living along the freeways.
Faisalabad is known as the textile hub of Pakistan, there are
many factories and industries. which are the main cause of
pollution in this era.
The Goal is to grow plants in this area , as I am also living in Faisalabad. I will just take initiative from my house and Workplace.
