Pakistan’s new government is aiming to plant 10 billion trees in the next five years. The goal of reforestation is to mitigate the effects of climate change, which Pakistan is already being impacted by. Many of Pakistan’s forests have been depleted and as a result, the country has lost its natural carbon sinks. The trees will also help protect against floods which often occur due to glacier melting in the northern mountains. According to the Sustainable Development Policy Institute, Pakistan is the seventh most vulnerable country to climate change, even though it contributes only 0.2% of global emissions. The country has already spent between $6-14 billion in relief aid for floods, droughts and unpredictable rainfall, which has become more extreme due to rising temperatures.
