PROFILES OF OFFICE BEARERS.‏

1. Mr. Younus Shad, advocate. Chairman.

ChairmanMr. Younus Shad is a prominent lawyer of Karachi, coming from one of its biggest law firms. Apart from his degree in Law, he holds a Master's degree from the University of Karachi in 1980, and has been active in the country's politics since university days. Mr Shad is highly respected as a straight-speaking, honest and effective social change-maker with clear ideas and views. He has vast legal experience, is popular in political circles of Sindh and Baluchistan, and is an office-bearer of a national party of the country. He has led many movements for democratic and human rights in Pakistan since 1970, and has contributed greatly to the struggle for equality at all levels within the country. His name needs no introduction in legal and political circles. Peace-making has been the crown of his career spanning 35 years. Mr. Shad helped found Global Green in 2004, and has since been active in its activities. He has been its Chairman now for the last 2 years. He spear-headed efforts at plantation on the Baluchistan coast, where there is now a focussed and integrated effort--in the implentation stage--of regular plantation on the entire coast. Along with the plantation effort there are environmental awareness programs for all school-going children in every school on the coast. It is expected that the students of the Baluchistan coast are going to be the most environmentally aware in the entire country, no small feat. He made concerted efforts to get the Baluchistan Government to initiate a plantation drive in the Province of Baluchistan in partnership with Global Green, to plant 30 million trees all over the Province. Sadly that effort failed despite the fact that resources for the project were to be generated from international sources imposing no burden upon the Provincial Government. Global Green has therefore launched its own drive to plant in concert with motivational efforts, a reduced though large number, of 25 million trees over an extended period. At present Mr. Younus Shad is engaging Karachi's local government in coordinated plantation drives in the city of Karachi and its vicinity.

2. Mr. Syed Ghulam Khan, advocate. General Secretary.

Syed Ghulam Khan has also been an activist since student days in Karachi and is also an important office-bearer of the Legal forum of one of the country's major political parties. He is also one of the founding members of the Organization and was the one to suggest its name, which was put to the vote and adopted unanimously. Mr. Khan has been one of the most active members of the Organization and is always busy planning plantation drives, suggesting new places and ideas regularly. He has been a driving spirit, which role he continues to play even to this day, never losing hope, and not letting anyone else lose hope, always optimistic and positive to the core. He was the first to plant a tree on behalf of Global Green and is still, its guiding spirit. The focus and energy of the Organization would not have been possible without him. Mr. Khan did his Degree in Law from the University of Karachi in 1979. Many of his colleagues and friends have since been elevated as judges right up to the Supreme Court of Pakistan. Mr. Khan hails from the KPK Province but has been settled in Karachi. Mr. Khan has always been a social worker and has always engaged himself in social upliftment causes and for the independence of the country's judicial system which at times felt threatened under spates of martial law experienced by the country.

3. Mr. Walid Ansari, advocate. Chief Organizer.

Mr. Walid Ansari, one of the founding members of Global Green, has been practicing law at the High Court of Sindh since 1982, beginning his career from the fore most law firm of the country, based in Karachi. He was also a student activist since 1970 and contested for the post of President of the students union of Karachi University in 1979 during the period of martial law in the country. He holds a Masters Degree in International Relations as well as a Masters Degree in Economics from there, has done an intern program at the United Nations Secretariat, is Chairman of the Forum for Justice and Development, a think tank in Pakistan, and has been active in environmental causes in Pakistan on behalf of Global Green. Mr. Ansari was appointed the Deputy Attorney-General for Pakistan by the Attorney-General in June of 2014 yet continued to actively take part in Global Green's efforts. Since relinquishing that post he was elected its Chief Organizer given his wide contacts all over the country and his ability to organize and coordinate programs in other parts of the land. He is leading the efforts at opening chapters of the Organization in other countries. Apart from hosting the Head Office of the Organization at his premises, Mr. Ansari also operates a mini nursery from his own house, adding to the efforts of the Organization in distributing free saplings. He was the first Chairman of Global Green.

4. Mr. Arshad Bhatti, Vice-Chairman Punjab.

Mr. Bhatti has been associated with Global Green since 2008 and is administrative head of the Province, based in Multan. The regional office of the Organization has all along been in the city as it lies in the arid southern region of the Punjab, the focus of the Organization's plantation drives. Mr. Bhatti is a businessman by profession visiting many cities in connection with his work. He has been a driving spirit and is always planning awareness events in the Province, as well as identifying areas and institutions, especially education ones, to plant saplings. He has been coordinating efforts with the Senior Vice-Chairman Punjab, of the Organization, who oversees all projects and determines their viability/successful completion. Mr. Bhatti regularly visits Karachi to coordinate efforts between the HO and the Regional Office. He is regularly seen arranging fund-raising efforts and bearing upon corporations and individuals to sponsor plantation campaigns and bring awareness all around. Mr. Bhatti is instrumental in forming the Organization's nursery in Multan and is presently making efforts to establish a bigger one in the city.

5. Mr. Fazal Rahman, Chief Organizer, KPK &GB.

Mr. Fazal Rahman is a prominent businessman of Swat associated with the jewelry and gem trade and has been with Global Green for a number of years. He brings with himself a rich back ground of struggles for the rights of Swat and its people having been one of the central leaders of a local party. After the spate of militant activity in the area and military intrvention to eliminate it, he has now directed his efforts towards his business and towards Global Green's efforts on the environment. He is planning next Spring and Monsoon plantation campaigns which are expected to be the biggest campaigns to date of the Organization. He is coordinating these campaigns with School Awareness Programs in both the KPK and Gilgit-Baltistan. He was previously Vice-Chairman of GB, before being elected the Chief Organizer now of two entire regions. He sponsors both regional offices at his premises in Mingora and Gilgit city. He is planning a new nursery in Gilgit that could cater to growing plantation demands in the region. Mr. Rahman is singularly responsible for combining both KPK and GB regions in a unified operational region. He now coordinates efforts with the Vice-Chairman, KPK, Mr. Syed Gulrang.

6. Mr. Syed Khadim Shah, Senior Vice-Chairman, KPK.

Mr. Shah was initially head of the Province of the KPK and is now responsible for provincial campaign viability in coordination with head quarters at Karachi. He is a local businessman and has been with Global Green for a number of years. His style and methodology have earned him the friendship of many in the Province and he continues to be a guide to environmental efforts in KPK. He runs a hotel in Mingora and is busy even otherwise in helping individuals and groups with problems and difficulties in city and village affairs. He has been requested by the Organization to plan a plantation campaign in his ancestral area of Ganshall, north of the old historical Silk Route which region was also not spared by the timber mafia. He has estimated that more than 80% of Swat's forests have been cut down in a spate of 40 years which is now having a devastating effect upon the region's climate, increasing warming and decreasing rainfalls by the year. He has been bearing upon local government to rapidly increase efforts at reforestation all over Swat, once a fascinating valley that even home to countless Europeans settled here indefinitely.

7. Mr. Syed Gulrang, Vice-Chairman, KPK.

Mr. Gulrang was in coordination with Global Green in 2011-2012 during the war on terrorism and was central in planting trees during turmoil, planting and distributing 45,000 saplings in the regions of Mingora city and Lodur Sharif in Swat. These efforts were coordinated with Syed Sikander Shah, the very able first Vice-Chairman of KPK and founding member of Global Green, who had obtained the said saplings despite having been kidnapped and tortured by terrorists for his efforts in ensuring a peaceful and beautiful Swat Valley, and who escaped with another kidnapee during a lucky military raid on his kidnappers. Mr. Syed Sikander Shah remains no more having left this world for his eternal abode. However, his efforts during war are indeed commendable and shall long be remembered. However, his cousin, Mr. Gulrang has been active in environmental affairs, especially in plantation in his region since many years before joining Global Green this year. He was elected the Provincial Head in August, 2015, after the sitting Vice-Chairman became Senior Vice-Chairman.

Proposals, Projects & Projections

GLOBAL GREEN MISSION & PROJECTS IN PAKISTAN.

Global Green has two foremost priorities in its operations within Pakistan. These are fruit-tree plants for poor households and regions, and, environmental awareness programs for school going children.

Other, equally important priorities and plans are: general aforestation, reforestation, village forestry, ban on logging of primeval forests, environment protection road maps, individual motivation, documentaries on the environment, help with legislation on the environment, public interest litigation aimed at protecting the environment, estsblishment of plant/sapling nurseries, popularization and provision of alternate and safe energy generating tools and equipment, e.g. solar energy systems and solar packs, and provision of aquaponics systems.

PROPOSALS, PROJECTS & PROJECTIONS.

Global Green has the following projects at hand, as well as other proposals presently in the development stage:

A. Development of a large nursery in Karachi, able to supply saplings to the city's suburbs, as well as to feed the present plantation drives of the coastal towns of Baluchistan. Presently there is one nursery catering to plantation drives. Fruit saplings are also purchased regularly from local nurseries for planting seasons.

B. Development of a large nursery along the Baluchistan coast, geared to take care of all future plantation needs of the entire Baluchistan coast, right up to Gwadur and Jivani near the Iranian border.

C. Development of a small nursery in the Naval base at Ormara targeting plantation in and around the naval base as well as the vicinity. This would act as a supplemental sapling-provider to plantation drives in and around Ormara.

D. School Environment Awareness Program for all the school going children on the entire Baluchistan coast covering each and every school, 2015-2017.

E. Monsoon plantation drives, for the regions of Karachi, Multan, Ormara, Swat, 2015.

F. Development of a large Northern Nursery in Mingora, Swat, supplying saplings to the entire northern region including Chitral, Gilgit-Baltistan, Kashmir and Swat itself.

G. School Environment Awareness program for the Multan/Vehari region and adjoining towns and cities.

H. School Environment Awareness program for all school going children in Chitral, and the 3 Kalash valleys of Bhumburet, Birir and Rumbur, 2015-2017.

I. Spring Plantation drive in Swat, Kalash (Chitral) and Gilgit city, 2016.

J. Limited Monsoon/Spring Plantation drive, Tharparkar (water-pump areas), 2015-2016.

M. Spring School Environment Awareness Program, Mingora and Lodur Sharif, Swat, 2016.

PROJECTS UNDERTAKEN BY GLOBAL GREEN SINCE 2004.

1. KORANGI INDUSTRIAL AREA, KARACHI, 2004-2007. Global Green initiated its first plantation drive in the Korangi Industrial Area of Karachi and its residential colonies in the monsoon of 2004, after having undertaken sporadic plantations in the area. It targetted road-sides, cafes, workshops and schools. However, most successful were schools, and extremely limited success was witnessed in road-side plantation. The success generated by schools was due to the enthusiasm of children as regards the environment and especially in planting trees. What caught the eye of children were fruit trees! These were in constant demand as children began planting for the Organization in the entire area using help from their own family members to ensure success in plantation. The excercise became very positive and the entire area was specifically planted using fruit trees. Fruit tree plantation was seen by many houses as a welcome addition to food supplementation. Children experienced a sense of ownership of the trees and eagerly took care of those planted by them. A major share of the trees were planted inside households as were many outside boundaries but within the ownership of the residents of those houses. This plantation drive continued for 3 years in Monsoons and during Spring, ending in 2007.

2. DARSANO CHANNO, 2010. Here the Organization planted fruit trees in households in the village, a suburb of Karachi, in a plantation drive that again included children of the area. However female members of households also eagerly participated and many fruit trees again were planted. In addition to the village, fruit trees were provided to 2 land owners that were planted on their lands. Chikoo trees planted on one of the smaller holdings, developed into a large orchard augmenting the owners earnings.

3. MINGORA & LODUR SHARIF, SWAT, KPK, 2009. Plantation here continued for a time well into the period of the army intervention to flush out militants disturbing the area. Plantation in the area was of pine and fir. A large volume of saplings were donated to Global Green by an NGO that had left the valley during the disturbances. These 45,000 saplings were all planted by the Organization in Mingora and Saidu Sharif and distributed to locals in Lodur Sharif to the north. The campaign was highly successful given that it did not let up during the army operation being carried out at the time.

4. PAKISTAN STEEL MILLS/VICINITY, 2007. The plantation campaign here was limited to regular trees in the vicinity of the steel mills, and dte palms to a factory premises within the limits of the steel mills. That effort proved utterly fruitless as locals who had promised follow ups and care, did not meet their end of the campaign. Consequently possibly all the trees planted in the 2 areas perished. This effort was not repeated as the same result may have been obtained again.

5. GILGIT, GILGIT-BALTISTAN, 2007-2009. Here Global Green planted a large number of fruit trees on an extremely large piece of land having its own spring, owned by locals who were known to the Organization. The place was to be used as a nursery for plantation as well as sale in the city and its vicinity later on. This would have provided resources to the Organization helping the Gilgit Centre remain feasible since it rests in a distant region bordering China. However, that initiative did not bear fruit as the incharge of the plot had other plans not in line with Global Green's own objectives and understanding with the owners. The plantation in the plot, however, remained successful, and possibly reaps dividends for its owners. The Gilgit-Baltistan region is now managed by a Chief Organizer who has planned massive plantation drives for Spring, 2016, and beyond. Schools in the city are targeted for environment awareness programs and student plantation drives.

6. FRUIT TREE PLANTATION IN MALIR GARRISON, KARACHI, 2013. Here Global Green provided mango trees imported from Punjab province and the same were transported by the army to the garrison and plantation was carried out by their own horticulture department. However the effort was not a complete success as the saplings did not all survive the weather conditions of the Sindh province. In other times saplings imported from Punjab survive in Sindh depending upon the fruit being planted. The Organization has now planned provision of local fruit trees to the garrison this Monsoon season, 2015.

7. MULTAN FRUIT-TREE PLANTATION IN EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS, 2012-2013. Global Green initially planted saplings in a few of the town's educational institutions, foremost being Epson College and Bahauddin Zakariya University. This was followed by further plantation in other schools and even at one of the famous shrines of Multan. Plantation continues regularly in Multan and saplings are also provided wherever needed. A nursery is being run and another larger one is planned in the city to cater to greater quantities of saplings required.

8. TREE PLANTATION DRIVES, KARACHI, 2014-TO THE PRESENT. Global Green has regularly been planting saplings, a good percentage being fruit-trees, in educational institutions/schools, parks, mosques and graveyards, and even road sides in Karachi, sometimes in partnership with others. This campaign is on a continuing basis and is year round. Global Green in concert with the Clifton Cantonment Board, Karachi, the District Administration, Karachi South, is also planting within their limits, as well as planning future drives. The Organization runs a small nursery in Karachi, receives saplings from local nurseries, and is now planning a big nursery for itself in the city in the very near future as a policy shift now places emphasis on substantial plantation in Karachi and its vicinity. The city of Karachi, the largest in Pakistan, with an estimated population of around 25 million experienced the hottest summer in its history with temperatures runing 5 degrees celcius above average summer temperatures, badly disturbing life in the city and putting its meagre electricity supply under even greater pressure. An earlier nursery located in a members's farm in Malir, Karachi, used to provide a substantial portion of the saplings for plantation. The new proposed nursery is closer at hand and more feasible.

9. ORMARA, BALUCHISTAN, 2013. Here Global Green has an ongoing plantation drive involving fruit trees for every house in the city, and a full environment awareness program for all school-going children. In the first phase fruit trees were planted in approximately 70% of the city's houses, whereas the remaining are expected to receive saplings before end, 2015, thereby covering the entire city and its population. This effort is being repeated in all the cities and towns on the Baluchistan coast.

PRESERVATION OF RAIN FORESTS

Need to preserve, and replant lost, rain forests.

1. More than 50% of the world's plant and animal species are found in rainforests.

2. Just the Amazon jungles release 20 billion tonnes of moisture every day, travelling to water crops thousands of miles away.

3. Deforestation releases more carbon dioxide ( CO2) into the atmosphere than all the cars, planes and ships put together.

4. Healthy forests absorb up to 10% of man's carbon emissions each year.

5. More than 50% of deforestation in Africa is carried out by poor farmers practising subsistence agriculture.

6. Farmers in Brazil earn $3000 per hectare by clearjng forest and growing soybeans for export.

7. 15 million hectares of tropical forests are lost every year. At this rate in 45 years there will be none left.

8. It is estimated that about $50 billion will be needed over the next 5 years to tackle the problem.

9. The rapid destruction of rainforests will destroy the climate, water resources, the food chain and the natural environment systems within 25 years.

10. Consumerism and a consumption society are the REAL cause of this destruction coupled with apathy for the future.

11. 60% of deforestation occurs in South America, whereas it possesses 48% of the world's rainforests. 543 million hectares.

12. 34% of deforestation occurs in Asia, whereas it possesses 37% of the world's rainforests. 170 million hectares.

13. 6% of deforestation occurs in Africa, whereas it possesses 15% of the world's rainforests. 412 million hectares.

14. Countries emitting most of the greenhouse gases are under obligation to foot the bill commensurate to the percentage of their environmental damaging activity since they began emitting activity, as the effect of these gases are global, not confined to the weather of the emitting countries.

15. A Global Rainforest Action Plan needs to be on the table right away!

16. Climate change is the greatest threat faced by mankind, begond even the threat of nuclear war, or countries continuously engaging in warfare, e.g.the United States of America, which is responsible for decimating entire countries and societies on manufactured false grounds.

17. A global ban needs to be placed against all deforestation and logging everywhere perpetually, and reforestation started in the rainforests as well as in all previous forested lands and mountains. Entire societies need to be motivated to plant.

18. Every individual of the world must be made to set and act upon a target of planting and nurturing 10 trees every year for as long as they live.

19. This is the early 2000's breakup of what contributes how much to greenhouse gas emissions:

A. Energy Supply 26%.

B. Industry 19.4%.

C. Deforestation 17.5%.

D. Agriculture 13.5%.

E. Transport 13.1%.

F. Residential & Commercial Buildings 8%.

G. Others 2.5%.

20. Rainforests act as carbon stores. Approximately 100-300 tonnes carbon in the form of trunks, branches and leaves are found in every hectare of forested land. The roots below ground store another 40 tonnes. And the soil holds even more. Carbon needs to be put back in the soil.

THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE WITH RISE IN TEMPERATURES

1. Temperatures will rise beyond bearable levels, making life extremely unbearable, killing entire species of animals.

2. Sea levels will rise, flooding many cities, low country sides and coastal areas, causing damage and loss in the trillions of dollars worldwide.

3. Droughts will turn agricultural lands and areas into deserts, depriving people of food.

4. Floodings too will destroy agricultural production, by drowning standing crops as already being witnessed in many countries of the world.

5. Violent storms will become more frequent, disturbing weather patterns all over the world, jeopardizing life schedules.

6. Millions of people, even animals, will migrate to temperate areas, disturbing the ecology of even these places, with the threat of conflict and wars breaking out as a result of attempts to stop them.

7. Livestocks will die in countless regions.

8. Water stocks may evaporate from the warmer areas of the globe, killing countless of thirst.

9. Air pollution will lead to respiratory disease and death. Unhealthy atmospheres will be the leading cause of illness in the world.

10. Jobs, lifestyles, housings, even very living, everywhere, will have to be given up. It will be a completely different world, a drastic tormenting life, a life that will be very short-lived.

11. Wars may be waged to capture water resources, spreading anarchy all over.

12. In short, catastrophe looms over mankind.

To reverse global warming we need to immediately come on one page globally and make united efforts, cut down greenhouse gases drastically, ban all logging and deforestation immediately, and plant trees by the billions regularly. The present style of global consumptiin and destruction of resources is not sustainable beyond 20 years from now.

Environmental Facts

1. There are just over 400 billion trees in the world according to NASA spatial mapping -- making that 600 trees per person.

2. More than 50% of the forests of the world have been wiped out since the industrial revolution, whereas world population increased more than 5 times during this period standing at over 7 billion people today. 500 billion trees need to be planted just to return the earth to the position it held until 1750.

3. The United States has by far the greatest amount of carbon emissions in the world, followed by China. But the US emissions per capita are ten times that of a Chinese. We call it the 'Unholy Carbon Capacity.'

4. Greenhouse gasses are the end result of energy generation that is thought to be the single most important component of raising living standards, which theory has now been trashed by proponents of eco-living.

5. North America, Asia and Europe produce 90% of greenhouse gas emissions, whereas the other 3 populated continents of Africa, South America and Australia have a combined share of only 10%!

6. The more the carbon in the atmosphere the more is heat trapped on earth, therefore global warming. Carbon dioxide levels have increase by 1/3rd in 200 years.

7. CO2 concentration in the atmosphere during the ice age was 220 part per million by volume, this grew to 228 ppmv just prior to the industrial age, making that an increase of 160 billion tons in the atmosphere. Today it is close to 400 ppmv, and rapidly rising, bringing the globe to the edge of disaster.

8. Presently the earth's atmosphere is composed of 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen , and 1% other gases, called greenhouse gases, of which the most important are carbon dioxide and water vapour or humidity which runs to 2% and less. Other greenhouse gases are ozone, nitrous oxide and methane. Greenhouse gases warm the earth's surface by approx. 35° Centigrade by trapping solar heat/energy.

9. Global warming is the balance between the heat generated from the sun as received on earth and the loss of this back into space. Things were going well till the industrial age. Now carbon is being emitted from burning of fossil fuels like petrol, furnace oil, diesel, coal, etc. The more of this that we spew into the atmosphere, the more do they trap heat, not allowing solar heat/energy to return in quantity.

10. 15 million hectares of tropical forests are lost each year -- the size of England. If this pace continues, in 45 years we will have no rain forests left in the world.

11. Why do we need rain forests!? Because they release billions of tons of moisture in the air every day, helping to water crops thousands of miles away.

12. Global warming has the real potential of releasing huge amounts of methane present under ocean beds into the atmosphere, and cause vast areas of the Amazon jungle and other forests to burn, thus releasing even more carbon into the atmosphere and therefore increasing global warming to unsustainable levels.

13. National strategies need to give way to global action. The problem is very serious and some states just dont have the resources to put in place national strategies that are effective. Concerted international action is the only effective recourse.

14. The main source of carbon dioxide is burning of fossil fuels. According to one study Industrialized nations need to reduce carbon emissions to 22 billion tons per annum.

15. The second major cause of carbon emissions is through change of land use from forests to agriculture. This is rampant in South America, Africa and Asia, where food production needs to be increased to feed a growing population. Change in land use is contributing 4 billion to of carbon annually, which is insignificant as compared to fossil fuel burning.

16. Population growth needs to be stemmed more for the global weather than for economic reasons. More people in economic activity means more carbon released into the atmosphere. At present Europe is the most crowded continent on earth.

17. Pakistan experienced a 5°C increase in average summer temperatures in 2015, breaking all records.

School Environment Awareness Program

Global Green is engaged in creating awareness and concern on protecting the natural environment and motivating school children to be environmentally responsible citizens of the future. In this regard the Organization has produced written material on general environmental and scientific facts, sayings on the environment, why the environment needs to be protected, the benefits of trees and forests, and, how to plant trees and care for them. The Organization also engages in motivating school children to take the initiative on the environment, establish their own local organizations, groups, and committees, when they are old enough, to plant trees, help identify and look after trees already planted in their areas, and to generally help protect the environment through meetings, seminars, awareness drives, avoidance of pollution and polluting materials, and reporting of unprotected and unauthorized chemical use and contamination.

This written material is distributed to school going children, at school, of the age bracket of 7-15 years, in regions where such awareness is crucial given the great deterioration levels there. These mostly, are the coastal, arid and mountainous regions of Pakistan.

The Organization also encourages children to volunteer some time in plantation drives. Written material in both Urdu and English is available with the Organization at all times and may be requested from the Head Office for copying and distribution anywhere in the world.

As a pioneering first, Global Green is motivating all individuals anywhere and everywhere in the world, to plant 10 trees annually, for the rest of their lives. Do pass the message onwards. Our world depends upon you.
