India Sets Record in Forest Restoration

India has restored 9.8 million hectares of degraded land in the last seven years (2011-2017), with government agencies playing a major role in the green initiative, restoring 95 per cent while the remaining 5 per cent was done by NGOs and private companies. The restoration work is part of the Bonn Challenge, a global effort to bring 150 million hectares of deforested and degraded land into restoration by 2020 and 350 million hectares by 2030. At least 46 countries have signed the Challenge and pledged their commitments for green covers. India has now submitted its report titled, 'Bonn Challenge and India: Progress on Restoration Efforts Across States and Landscapes', giving detailed progress on forest landscape restoration under the global treaty. India had pledged to restore 13 million hectares of degraded land by 2020 and an additional 8 million hectares by 2030.
