5000 Tibetan women belonging to 33 regional chapters of the Tibetan Women’s Association based in India observed the World Environment Day Sunday by planting 20,000 trees in 10 states in India.

According to Tibetan Women's Association Pesident Dolkar Lhamo Kirti, “curbing deforestation is a highly cost-effective way to reduce emissions and we need to plant 130 million trees to make up for the loss of trees in the past decade.”

Kirti said she took the opportunity to highlight the critical issue of climate change in Tibet.

India is the global host of United Nations Environment Program campaign; ‘Forest: Nature at your service’ this year.
