About the Event

ABOUT THE AFFORESTATION PROJECT

  • Planting 300 saplings of native flora with a high diversity quotient in village Ghughuti, district Almora, Uttarakhand
  • Generating full/part-time jobs for the local community
  • Supporting village economy
  • Setting a stone for the future possibility of initiatives like the sustainable harvest of plantation
  • Building a scalable and replicable model which can be implemented in other places

Afforestation Objective

The objective of this project is to implement afforestation in the villages where the farmers are unable to harvest their land due to migration and wild animals. We will work with the local communities to plant trees that produce fruits and wood, providing both environmental and economic benefits.

The villagers will be paid to take care of the trees, creating job opportunities and income for them. We will choose those trees that produce fruit or woods so that they are valuable for the villagers and they take care of them. promote the use of smokeless chulhas for cooking in households. The aim is to reduce indoor air pollution, promote a cleaner environment, and improve the health of women and children in rural areas. This project will contribute towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) related to clean energy, health, and the environment.

Benefits of Afforestation

Afforestation has a significant impact on climate change. It can help to reduce carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere by sequestering carbon in the trees and the soil. Moreover, it can help to prevent soil erosion and reduce the impact of floods.

Afforestation also has several socio-economic benefits. It creates job opportunities for the local communities, generates income, and provides the opportunity to harvest fruits and wood from the trees. This project will also help in the overall development of the community.

Accomplishment till now

Land Identification: We have Identified suitable land for planting trees in consultation with the local community. We will be using the private land of the villagers which is currently unused due to less number of people in the village and the wild animals destroying the crop.

Baseline Survey: We have conducted a baseline survey to assess the existing vegetation, soil quality, and water availability. This will help in choosing the appropriate species of trees for the project.

Appointment of Consultant/Project Coordinator: We have appointed Consultant/Project Coordinator who will be working with us in the plantation work.

Species for plantation: We will plant Chandan (Sandalwood) plants with some plants, which will support the local ecosystem. Our aim is to create a sustainable and resilient forest ecosystem that will provide long-lasting benefits to the environment and local community

Target Location Village-Ghughuti, District-Almora, Uttarakhand, India. Planted 400 Trees (300 Sandalwood and 100 host plants)

We have successfully planted 400 trees (300 Sandalwood and 100 host plants) as a part of our commitment to environmental sustainability.These trees represent not just a greener landscape but a symbol of our dedication to a healthier planet.

Work for Sustainability of Trees

For nurturing these trees, we are proud to have created employment opportunities for a selected group of individuals who are actively involved in caring for these plants.This initiative not only contributes to the well-being of our environment but also supports the livelihoods of our community members.
