Delta to establish green parks, tree corridors in Asaba

Director-General of Delta State Capital Territory Development Agency (DSCTDA), Mr Clement Ofuani, has said that the state government would soon commence the establishment of “green parks and tree corridors” in Asaba, the state capital.
The measure was designed to address environmental challenges, particularly the challenge of climate change, he said, while soliciting the support of residents.
Ofuani stated this during the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with a non-governmental organisation, Fight Against Desert Encroachment (FADE), on Monday in Asaba.
The Delta State Capital Territory Development Agency chief, who signed on behalf of the government, said the platform would involve “a deliberate policy of establishing green parks and tree corridors in and around Asaba, the state capital.”
The initiative would enhance the aesthetic quality of Asaba as well as uplifting the general quality of the environment in order to make it more healthy and live-able and economically creative and attractive.
According to Ofuani, “To drive initiative, the agency is entering into a partnership with FADE (Africa), a non-governmental organisation accredited by the United Nations Environment Protection Agency (UNEP) for its foremost leadership in advocacy and implementation of comprehensive restoration and climate change initiatives. The partnership will entail the identification and establishment of Green Parks and Tree Corridors within the territory.”
He urged residents of Asaba to join hands with the agency in not only planting trees and greening the city but also by actively cleaning up the environment through better waste management and avoid indiscriminate waste disposal.
President and founder of FADE, Dr Newton Jibunoh, assured that his organization would bring its decades of experience to bear on the greening project in that his organisation would bring the rich experience it had gathered in the state capital.
