June 25, 2022 (ENA) The Ethiopian Green Legacy is an excellent and much appreciated initiative, United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UN-OCHA) Ethiopia Head, Michel Saad, said.

In
an exclusive interview with the Ethiopian News Agency, he added that
“tree planting will help reduce climate shocks in Ethiopia.”

Since
the country is in the Horn of Africa, it is always in front of every
climate change. The Green Legacy is therefore an excellent and much
appreciated initiative, the head noted.

According
to the head, this initiative allows not only Ethiopia but also other
countries to have a temperate climate. Hence it is necessary to
cooperate in this encouraging initiative.

During
the spread of COVID-19, everyone realized that the pandemic knows no
borders, Saad stated, adding that likewise climate change is a problem
suffered by all. He warned that no one is immune to the vagaries of the
weather in the years to come. The danger is for all of us.

“Hence
we need to have common goals so that we can ensure that future
generations will look as good as possible at a better space.”

It
is worth recalling that the fourth round of Ethiopia’s Green Legacy
Campaign began at Gulele Botanical Garden in Addis Ababa in the presence
of Prime Minister Abiy.

Ethiopia has finalized preparations to plant 6 billion of trees this rainy season.

In a recent statement, the PM said Ethiopia would achieve its fixed four-year plan of planting 20 billion trees by 2022.
