PM Imran inaugurates Miyawaki urban forest in Lahore: Go green

Pm Imran Khan inaugurated the Miyawaki urban forest in Lahore in order to address the challenges of global warming and climate change.

While addressing the public, Imran said that Pakistan was facing some serious climatic changes and global warming challenges.

During the premiere it was explained that the Miyawaki technique would help in lowering pollution and increase forest cover in Pakistan. The PM shed light on the rapid deforestation that has been occurring in Pakistan and adopting the Miyawaki technique was a way to overcome that problem and increase forestation in Pakistan.

He recalled that barren areas have been transformed into lush, green areas in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa where the government undertook the Billion Tree Tsunami initiative.

The Miyawaki forest has been developed over 100 kanals with a total of 165,000 plants which will grow ten times quicker than a normal forest owing to the unique Miyawaki technique. Pioneered by Japanese botanist Akira Miyawaki, it is a unique technique that helps build native forests 10 times faster and 30 times denser.

Under the approach numerous native species have been planted in the same area close to each other, this is to ensure that all plants receive equal amounts of sunlight only from the top and grow upwards rather than sideways. 

It uses specialized land preparation as well as indigenous varieties with varying growth rates to produce fast-growing urban forests
