Mumbai has been named the "2021 Tree City of the World" by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in collaboration with the Arbor Day Foundation, the Greater Mumbai Municipal Corporation's Department of Public Relations announced on Tuesday.

As a result, the city of Mumbai, which used to be called as the “City of Dreams,” now has a new title to it: “Tree City.”
