RCC mayor for making Rajshahi city eco-friendly

BSS, Rajshahi

Rajshahi City Corporation (RCC) is pledge- bound to make the metropolis eco-friendly through massive plantation of trees alongside taking other initiatives. “We are urging authorities of public and private entities including educational institutions and installations to supplement the city corporation’s efforts of massive plantation of trees,” said RCC Mayor AHM Khairuzzaman Liton while inaugurating a tree plantation programme at

Shalbagan City Park as chief guest.

On the occasion, around 250 saplings of various ornamental trees donated by Varendra University (VU) were transplanted there.

VU Adviser Prof Saidur Rahman Khan and its Vice-chancellor Prof Osman Gani Talukder, RCC Ward Councilor Towhidul Haque and Chief Engineer Ashraful Haque were present at the programme.

Liton said all quarters should take the responsibility of protecting the city and its adjacent areas from the adverse impacts of climate change.

As part of the adaptation measures, massive plantation of trees could play an important role in coping with the adverse impact of global climate change, he added.

“We are also implementing a project titled ‘Zero soil’ to cover all the available top soils with green and various trees,” he said adding that plantation of 14,500 tree saplings in the current season has been launched aiming to safeguard the city’s environment.
