Agriculture Ministry announces national tree planting campaign

SULAIMANI (ESTA) — The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) Ministry of Agriculture Sunday announced a national tree planting campaign, calling all related bodies including the organizations to join.    

The campaign is set to commence this week on Tuesday across the Kurdistan Region, Advisor to the Ministry Rzgar Mohammed in a press conference said.

Under the name “Make fences into trees” the campaign will begin.

The national campaign aims to combat the climate change effects, particularly drought, and protect the Region’s environment as well as add more green space, the official said.

In the meantime, the Ministries of Municipality and Education will coordinate, while also joined by all independent administrative bodies of the Region, according to Mohammed’s words.

He restated that the campaign is within the framework of the Ministry’s plan, seeking to reduce drought-related problems so that they can preserve the Region’s environment.

“The Ministry will provide trees for free,” the official said, calling all governmental bodies, organizations, and farmers to support and protect the Region from the danger of desertification.

The impacts of climate change have covered the entire country, seeing itself in low rainfalls, intense waves of dust storms, and a decrease in water levels on both surfaces as well as underground.

Back then, Bafel Talabani, the President of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) on the 47th anniversary of the PUK foundation in June announced one million trees planting campaign across the Region.

“We will plant one million trees in different parts of Kurdistan from today until another anniversary of the PUK’s founding,” Talabani said. “We will take responsibility for greening Kurdistan.” He added.

The Advisor praised Talabani’s greening endeavor.

“We extended gratitude to PUK President for announcing that campaign.”
