British media reported on Sunday (16th) that the British government plans to triple the tree planting rate in the next three years in order to catch up with the zero carbon emission target by 2050. It is estimated that 7,000 hectares of forest land can be created each year. Environment Minister Youss Tees will announce the above measures on Tuesday.
According to reports, the United Kingdom expects to announce the plan before the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Scotland, in November, so as to encourage other countries to follow suit. The government will ensure that trees are planted in suitable locations and create more relevant green jobs.
It is currently unknown how many trees will be planted in the UK, where they will be planted, the amount of funds and sources, etc. The government has stated that it will focus on four goals in combating climate change, namely ensuring zero global carbon emissions, protecting communities and natural ecology from the impact of climate change, Mobilize funds and let different countries cooperate to speed up related actions.
