Plant A Million Trees

Trees are a vital component in the ecosystem –they not only give oxygen, store carbon, stabilize the soil and give refuge to wildlife, but also provide materials for tools, shelter and ultimately, food for both animals and human beings.


Plant A Million Zambia is a social enterprise, which was officially inaugurated by the Zambian President in 2018. It aims to plant at least two billion trees by 2021. According to Emmanuel Chibesakunda, PAM initiator, sponsor and project manager, the vision is to accelerate and scale up a tree-based economy for socio-economic change in Zambia and mitigate climate change impacts.
