Islamabad : The ongoing Clean and Green Gwadar project has started showing its positive impacts on the natural environment of the coastal line and port city of the country.

According to the details, the climate change ministry collaborated with the Chinese officials who were working on the multi-billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) to make it environment-friendly.

It was then decided that a number of initiatives would be taken in the next five years to bring a visible and positive change in the natural environment of Gwadar City.

Now it is going to become a ‘Zero Waste City’ as solid and liquid waste would be recycled and used for the benefit of the local people.

The project of planting one million trees is nearing completion under Agriculture Eco-System Project.

There are various projects that have shown tremendous results such as Pakistan-China Friendship Green Park, GDA Central Park, GDA new town family park, Sunset Park, Gwadar Port Free Zone Nursery, Tissue Culture Lab, and intelligent greenhouse in free zone area.

The work on projects is also underway including Aloe Vera plantation and Juncao, a name for fungi-breeding herbaceous plants, also known as the ‘Magic Grass’.

The tree plantation drives have been completed on various main roads including Marine Drive and Syed Hashmi Avenue (Old Airport), Shaheed Capt. Road, Pakistan-China Friendship Road.

The plantation is also visible in China-Pakistan Faqeer Middle School, GDA higher secondary school, Bahria Model Schools, Army Public Schools, and Allama Iqbal Open University campus.

An official said that local people are now becoming the beneficiary of greener life since Gwadar port came under the preview of the CPEC.
