The goal must reach its goals by 2040. It will cost $720million.

He explained that he was preparing to plant half a billion trees along the roads of all the cities he passes through.
Zandberg says cities need more shade, trees, and nature-based solutions for climate change. “It’s time for the government take a decision to ensure that urban planning adapts to changing climate conditions.”
Forer stated that the plan would achieve two goals: to protect the environment and improve urban space.
