12 October 2020

In Pakistan, the Aga Khan Agency for Habitat (AKAH) and the government of Gilgit-Baltistan have announced a $4.2 million project to plant 50 million trees across the region to reduce the climate-induced natural disasters. The project will use tree plantation to absorb carbon and stabilise soil and slopes in hazard-prone areas, mitigating climate change and disaster risk. The forest, wildlife and environment department will plant 50 million trees on 300 sites with technical support from the AKAH.
