Deforestation is not only minimizing the chances of agriculture sustainability in Pakistan, but it is also causing climate change. Rapid deforestation is one of the reasons of droughts and melting of glaciers. Although a little effort like tree plantation drives has been made by federal and provincial governments. This only receives little enthusiasm from government functionaries and national media also pays little heed. If our government does not make any serious effort to deter deforestation, global warming would seriously affect agriculture and the economy of the country in the coming years.
