Karachi fifth most least livable city of the world ranks 136th in the list of 140 cities, It is also among the most 10 polluted cities of the world. Urban air pollution is the most important environment issue of Karachi. Air pollution is  4th highest risk factor for death globally. It kills 5.5 million people around the world each Year. The air of Karachi is highly polluted due to automobiles, smoke emitted by Rickshaws, Cars, Bikes, Buses, burning of garbage & industrial emissions.

Karachi is heading towards an environment catastrophe.  It is high time to take the following steps for tree plantation in this city on emergency basis to avert the impending disaster which may cause thousands of deaths each year.

1-     All existing nurseries of federal, provincial & Cantonment Boards and city government including private nurseries be made responsible to distribute 10% of their plants (two to three feet high) to the people of Karachi free of cost.

2-      All high rise buildings which are under construction or in the process of design approval should be made lawfully responsible to develop green cover for each building. An enforcement team comprised of the representatives of civil society be constituted to check & monitor the implementation of this Law.

3-      All big Industrial units and their representative bodies be made legally responsible to begin a massive tree plantation campaign in all barren parks and vacant public places.

4-     Karachi has become unlivable due to air water, soil, noise, light and thermal pollution.  Opportunistic   elements have started malicious business to earn huge money by the distribution of environmental awards. These elements often seek support of federal and provincial department & officials to obtain more “business” in the name of environmental protection. It is therefore, demanded that a ban be imposed on all such so-called money fetching Awards.
