BAUCHI STATE TREE PLANTING BILL

The 2018 windstorm in Bauchi jostled the Governor of the State into undertaking a tree planting campaign in the State. The Bauchi State House of Assembly also responded by drafting a Bill in parliament. SISDev was part of the drafting process of the private member’s bill titled “Bauchi State Tree Planting and Environmental Conservation Bill” sponsored by honorable Musa Nakwada and the organisation was also an active participant during the public hearing. The purpose, among others, was to take proactive measures in preserving and restoring forest Reserves in Bauchi State.
