Islamabad’s Vanishing Forests: A Threat to Survival and Urgent Call for Global Action
Forests are vital for our survival, but they’re disappearing fast in Islamabad. Climate change is a severe threat, and Pakistan is vulnerable to its effects.
Heavy rainfall caused severe floods in 2022, displacing millions and causing billions of dollars in damage. As the population grows, infrastructure expands, and forests are lost.
Satellite imagery shows a 36% reduction in green areas in Islamabad since 2000, leading to urban flooding and forest fires. Initiatives such as Miyawaki forestation are commendable, but more needs to be done globally to protect and restore forests.
