Anti-pollution tree planting programme in Malawi

A Malawi youth group based in the city of Blantyre is to carry out a programme of tree planting along some of the city's polluted rivers. The programme will start the rehabilitation of a river which feeds one of the city's main reservoirs. Planting trees along the river is seen as the only means to prevent silt from choking the reservoir. A recent report stated that water in most urban rivers in Malawi are unusable following reckless dumping of industrial waste into them.
