(MENAFN) The province of Alborz is a major supporter of the Iranian Ministry of Agriculture's plan to plant one billion saplings in the country over the next four years, according to Deputy Minister for Water and Soil Affairs Safdar Niazi. With an annual production of 40 million saplings, Alborz is an important contributor to this ambitious plan.
Speaking at a ceremony for tree and sapling planting in the Agriculture Department of the province, Niazi highlighted the importance of increasing green space per capita and preserving the environment and clean air. He emphasized that the Ministry of Agriculture has taken measures to advance this popular plan and provide necessary assistance in implementing its projects.
Last week, Agriculture Minister Javad Sadati-Nejad announced that Iran has the capacity to plant one billion trees in four years. He explained that, in the current Iranian calendar year, the ministry has revived 238 abandoned and destroyed nurseries, creating the capacity to produce 400 million saplings with the help of the people and the private sector.
The plan to plant one billion saplings in Iran aims to improve the country's environment, increase green space, and tackle desertification. The initiative is expected to create new job opportunities and contribute to the country's economic development.
The Water and Soil Department of the Ministry of Agriculture is actively involved in advancing this plan and providing the necessary support for its implementation. The department has taken measures to facilitate the production and distribution of saplings, as well as to establish nurseries and green spaces across the country.
Alborz province's active participation in this plan is a testament to the region's commitment to environmental sustainability and preservation. The province's annual production of 40 million saplings demonstrates its significant contribution to the national target of one billion saplings in four years.
As the Iranian government continues to invest in environmental sustainability and preservation, it is expected that the country will see significant improvements in its environment and the quality of life for its citizens. The plan to plant one billion saplings is just one of the many initiatives aimed at achieving these goals and contributing to the country's growth and development.
