Progress has made towards the establishment of 100,000 green jobs in Pakistan

The World Bank (WB) has agreed to provide financial assistance to Pakistan to create 100,000 green jobs.

The Ministry of Climate Change has resolved to generate 0.1 million green jobs in Pakistan by giving young people the opportunity to earn between Rs800 and Rs1,000 per day by planting trees in their neighbourhoods.

A World Bank (WB) group led by the country director met with Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Climate Change Malik Amin Aslam to discuss Prime Minister Imran Khan’s proposal to create green jobs.

The World Bank has promised to provide $120 million in financial help to Pakistan’s SAPM Malik Amin Aslam to start the green jobs programme.

During the discussion, Malik Amin Aslam stated that Prime Minister Imran Khan promised to create green jobs during the coronavirus outbreak, which the federal government delivered on.

He stated that the World Bank would provide funds to the scheme to plant millions of trees across the country.

Minister stated that by entering the initiative, every young person might earn Rs20,000 to Rs30,000 per month while confirming employment would take five to six months.
