Islamabad’s City Development Authority (CDA) has decided to use drones to monitor wildlife and forests. The CDA announced the pilot project through a tender notice for drone camera equipment worth Rs 6.8 million. In a press release issued on Sunday, the CDA said that drones will help the agency detect and act against encroachments in Malpur’s Model Forestry Park.
It will also help prevent illegal logging and identify forest fires, among other things. Additionally, the CDA will be installing over a hundred cameras to improve security.
