Improving the environmental situation in our country

A video conference chaired by President Shavkat Mirziyoyev, dedicated to priority tasks in the field of environmental protection, was devoted to identifying problems in the field and finding solutions.

"Over the past 4 years, industrial enterprises have doubled, and the amount of dust and gas emissions in cities has exceeded the norm by 4 times. 90% of atmospheric emissions are in the cities of Tashkent, Samarkand, Fergana, Andijan, Namangan, Kokand, Navoi, Bukhara, Chirchik, Angren, Almalyk, Bekabad, Gulistan and Nukus, "the message says.

It was also noted that in our country the number of green zones is reduced by 3-4 times, the level of ground and surface waters is sharply decreasing, the amount of household waste is increasing and their management is not fully established, which negatively affects the environmental situation.

- Plant 910,000 seedlings of maple, oak, poplar and other trees on highways by the spring of 2022;
