The Uganda Muslim Supreme Council will this year plant trees to increase the absorption of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere in an effort to fight climate change.
The project dubbed “Green Friday”, which was launched yesterday in partnership with British Council and National Forestry Authority (NFA), will see 10,000 trees planted by Muslim communities.
“Climate change is a great threat to humanity today with many adverse effects on lives and property through the shift in rainfall patterns, droughts, flooding and landslides and has accelerated the spread of diseases like malaria,” said Hajjat Sebyala Aphwa, British Council climate change icon.
She said the recent increase in industrialisation and deforestation has accelerated the rate of global warming. She said the problem of climate change, which is worsening every day, needs a combined effort from all partners including religious leaders, who should spread message of environmental conservation.
‘Green Fridays’, according to Hajjat Sebyala, will be dedicated entirely to planting trees in different parts of the country starting with the central region.
The British Council, in partnership with Makerere University and NFA, has already scheduled to plant 30 million trees in two years and NFA will plant 33 million trees in the next one year.
