According to the specifics, a plan has been put into place to tackle air pollution by planting 600,000 six-foot seedlings in bare spaces throughout the city. To ensure successful implementation in this respect, a joint committee made up of the Lahore District Administration and Forest Department has been established. It was disclosed that a list of unplanted sites had been requested by the Lahore Commissioner.
Additionally, the PHA will plant trees along the roads that connect Lahore to other districts. Each seedling will be geotagged and uploaded to a dashboard so that the planting initiative’s success may be monitored. This campaign is an important step in reducing the negative effects of air pollution on individuals’ health and well-being while also highlighting the value of sustainability and environmental preservation for coming generations.
