To cushion the unfavorable impacts of climate change, about three million trees would be planted in Kano in the space of three years.

The trees would be planted in schools, cemeteries and vulnerable communities with the intention to mitigate the harsh effects of climate change in the state.

The Commissioner for Environment, Dr Kabiru Getso, said this on Tuesday, when he launched the first phase of tree planting campaign for 2022 in Kawaji and Dakata villages.

“The essence of the tree planting is to improve the vegatative cover and address some of the environmental challenges in the state.

“The trees would be planted in schools, mosques, cemeteries, streets and neighbourhoods to achieve the desired objective," he revealed.

Dr. Gestor encouraged residents of the communities to plant a tree each “in order to control desertification, bring down the climate temperature, control flooding and provide food and medicine”.

In his address, the Village Head of Kawaji ward, Umaru Adamu, appealed to the residents of the area to nurture the trees planted by the government for their own benefits.

Also, the Village Head of Dakata, Alhaji Salisu Ibrahim, commended the State Government for launching the campaign in their area.
