Karachi saying goodbye to MQM, and hello to PTI. Although this isn’t an official govnement initiative, this man was truly inspired by the Billion Tree Tsunami. He is trying to build a forest in the middle of Karachi (near Defence Area). Watch the short video for more information.

This is the change we need!

Very good initiative.

Here whenever I try to grow a food/vegetable/fruit forest in my backyard, the squirrels eats all the plants up. Sometime it's annoying but it is nature.

How many trees does Karachi need to defeat climate change?

I estimate 200-500 million. So household should plan two tree every month, perhaps even more if it’s a large house.

This will make sure the temperatures drop nicely.

All this is good....but we need to have expert teams of environmentalists who study the environment, goals, and then plan the plantations.

Don't haphazardly plant trees who might be needing a lot of water when there's no water around or things like that.

Hopefully PTI takes all of this into account and plans a better billions tree tsunami for rest of Pakistan

I estimate 10-15 million. So household should plan one tree every year, perhaps even more if it’s a large house.

Not even that much. More like 200 million

Pakistan has a lot of water. Just the only thing is the country does not know how to use it all and therefore wastes it all. The amount of water that flows through Indus is quite a lot, but Pakistanis waste about 80-85% of it through bad agricultural techniques, evaporation, etc.

We need to atleast build two huge dams like Tarbela, and tens of small to medium dams on major rivers. And then invest heavily in water conservation agricultural practices across Pakistan---such as drip irrigation etc. It will increase the yield and save water as well.

Absolutely beautiful. Hope this will become a grass root campaign and whole urban and rural Sindh will become green.

The trees will be shoved into stoves faster than they could be grown.
