Pakistan only has 5% of forest landcover as opposed to an internationally set standard of 25%. In order to increase the forest coverage, plantation is included as a main component of the CGPM. The program is executed in 100 districts by the Ministry of Climate Change and the Wildlife Departments with a total cost of PKR 3.652 billion over a time period of 5 years (2016-2021). Increase in forest area will also result in revival of wildlife resources and strengthening the zoological surveys of Pakistan.
