Ethiopians have set a new world record for trees planted in one day.
More than 353,633,660 trees were planted in 12 hours on Monday, surpassing the initial goal of planning 200 million trees.
Prime Minister Dr Abiy Ahmed congratulated Ethiopians for not only meeting the target but also exceeding it.
“This activity sends a strong message to the world,” he said.
Prime Minister’s Green Legacy initiative, launched in May, aims to plant a total of 4 billion trees this rainy season.
