TURBAT: Pakistan’s increasing population has led to a number of problems for the people. One of them is the growing need for residential spaces, due to which any available forested area is used.

Trees are cut and construction takes place to accommodate the needs of the growing population, resulting in drastic changes in the environment and climate.

The government needs to devise an effective family planning policy according to our country’s resources otherwise we will be left with a concrete jungle and a ruined ecosystem.
