Qatar Tribune reported that in a bid to tackle climate change, the government is preparing to launch a national initiative to plant 1 million trees across the country.
The Ministry of Municipality and Environment (Al Baladiya) welcomed the initiative following a recommendation submitted by the Central Municipal Council (CMC) to start a large-scale project to increase the greenery in the country.
The initiative will be carried out in two phases. The first phase involves the establishment of a large nursery for trees and plants, while in the second one million trees will be planted across the country with participation of schools and other sectors.
Abdelhadi al Marri, Director of Climate Change Department at Al Baladiya, said such an initiative contributes to tackling the effects of climate change . The CMC recommendation also mentions that the necessity for large-scale nurseries is aimed at achieving self-sufficiency in tree plantation, especially Sammar trees that grow well in Qatar and have several other uses.
