A comprehensive plantation campaign of Greener DHA is being initiated by DHA in collaboration with World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) to add to the greenery of the area in a massive manner. A meeting of the stake holders of the campaign presided by Administrator DHA Brig Zubair Ahmed was held at DHA Head Office to discuss the modalities and details of the “Go Green DHA” campaign and to finalize an effective strategy for achieving its objectives.
During the plantation campaign starting from 25 July 2016 a mammoth number of 25,000 plants of different species will be planted all over DHA whereas paradoxically 100,000 plants will be planted at the upcoming project of DHA City Karachi. A Seminar on Greener DHA will be held by the end of this month at DHA Country and Golf Club in which reps of different horticulture departments, horticulturalists, landscape specialists and experts will highlight the importance of trees and recommend appropriate species for fruitful plantation.
The meeting was attended by reps of WWF, NEFH (National Fund for Environment and Horticulture), Sind Govt Horticulture Department, CBC, HSP (Horticulture Society of Pakistan), horticulture experts and concerned DHA/DCK officials.
