NASA Satellite Images show Pakistan is amongst the world’s fastest countries becoming greener than ever

SHARE:

Nasa recently released images that show greenery in Pakistan has grown in double digits since the past few decades. This increase in greenery is being credited to intensive agriculture in Punjab and Sindh provinces as well as the government’s aim to plant a billion trees.

According to the report published by Nasa, China and India are currently leading globally and are accounted for one-third of greening. The Boston University research team found that global green leaf area has increased by 5 percent since the early 2000s, an area equivalent to all of the Amazon rainforests. At least 25 percent of that gain came in China. Overall, one-third of Earth’s vegetated lands are greening, while 5 percent are growing browner. The study was published on February 11, 2019, in the journal Nature Sustainability.

Pakistan’s arable land has also grown by about 600,000 hectares between the year 2015 and 2016. This was brought forward by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in Pakistan.

According to a report by the FAO, the area has increased from 36,252,000 hectares to 36,844,000 hectares. However, in the same period, Pakistan has also faced deforestation. The areas that were under the forests have shrunk from 1,515,000 hectares in 2014 to 1.429,000 hectares in 2016.

According to the Washington Post, Pakistan’s rise in greenery is also due to the ambitious Billion Tree Tsunami which has caused many common citizens to plant trees in their respected cities, and areas.
