He said that environment is the foremost priority agenda of our government and we are rigorously pursuing it since the day one. “We have already initiated ten billion tsunami tree plantation drive a month ago and now we have launched a clean grean Pakistan initiative to bring behavioural changes amongst the people in accordance with the vision of PM” he said.
He said unfortunately Pakistan is amongst those top seven countries which are badly affected with climate changes.”Our agriculture sector is facing bad effects of these climate changes too. Growing seasons have been shifted” he added.

Therefore, we intend to launch a pilot project of water storage in Islamabad Capital Territory which would be the first project in our “Recharge Pakistan drive” and will further take it to the National level.
