Lusaka Province Minister Japhen Mwakalombe says there was need for households to initiate tree planting activities at household levels.

Mr. Mwakalombe said this is because trees have multiple benefits for respective homes such as offering shades and climate change control, among others.

The minister said this during the launch of the provincial tree planting exercise at Mponda village in Chongwe district today and held under theme: advancing the role of natural regeneration in forest restoration.

The provincial minister revealed that government had provided some mechanisms to alleviate the suffering of the people at household level through the tree planting exercise which is aimed at increasing the forestry cover.

Mr Mwakalombe disclosed that government has collaborated with Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) to promote community empowerment through the green jobs project.

He said explained that the green jobs project has resulted in the financing of the planting of 108 trees for three local farmers in Chongwe district.

The lawmaker further said the fruits that the trees will bear will be traded and consumed at household hence increasing the nutrition for the people.
