According to a news source, PM Imran Khan inaugurated the world’s biggest Miyawaki urban forest as part of a monsoon drive under the 10 Billion Tree Tsunami project on Monday.
Further, PM Imran Khan, while speaking on the occasion said that this would be the largest Miyawaki forest in the world. And we are hopeful to leave a better country for future generations.
He also lauded the efforts of the organizers for planting the Miyawaki Forest. He went on to add that effective measures have been taken to tackle climate change.
The PM further stated that Lahore is a city of gardens but unfortunately, it is now considered one of the most polluted cities.
Furthermore, he added that global warming has caused the earth’s temperature to rise dramatically. However, Miyawaki forests will prove to help control environmental pollution.
It is pertinent to note that the Miyawaki forest has been developed over 100 kanals with a total of 165000 plants. Which will grow ten times quicker than a normal forest owing to the unique Miyawaki technique.
Likewise, it uses specialized land preparation as well as indigenous varieties with varying growth rates to produce fast-growing urban forests.
Another 53 Miyawaki forests are being grown in different parts of Lahore to create sinks for carbon as well as for better pollution abatement in the city.
All have projects been geo-tagged for monitoring of their growth and development.
About 500 million trees are being planted across the country under the ongoing Monsoon plantation drive, the largest ever such drive in Pakistan.
