Kwania district local government has embarked on a tree planting campaign in partnership with the Ministry of Water and Environment.
The tree planting campaign dubbed "The Roots Campaign" targets people along the lake shores, the government institutions and those along the roadside.
During the launch on Friday at Aduku Primary school, a total of 60,000 seedlings that includes pines and a mixture of fruit trees were given to beneficiaries.
Opollot Apollo Benard, the Kwania deputy Chief Administrative Officer says the district seeks to plant 20,000 tree seedlings annually in an attempt to mitigate environment related problems.

Jimmy Ouna, Regional Manager of Achwa River Ranch noted that many farmers are still destroying forest for charcoal business yet it has affected rainfall formation. Ouna appealed to leaders in Lango to sensitize people on the danger of destroying the forest in order to conserve the environment.
