He also mentioned that a meeting is planned for this week at the Government House so that all the ministries and institutions support the program.
He said that the Executive Branch is planning short, medium and long-term actions and that the Ministry of Education will be doing the same so as to make students understand the importance of the project.
Miguel Ceara Hatton, Minister of Environment, stated that they have several priorities regarding the environment: environmental education, water, the impact of climate change, Caribbean Sea and solid waste management.
The National Reforestation initiative, which intends to plant 320,000 trees in the 31 provinces of the country, covering the coastal areas, five watersheds and four protected areas, was announced last week by the Government.
Its application will be initiated on June 10 and will be carried out initially during three consecutive weekends in the main river basins of the country, such as the Yuna River and in the tributaries which irrigate Greater Santo Domingo, as informed by the Government last May 31, during the meeting of the Council of Ministers.
