Ganga Vriksharopan Abhiyan

#National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) has launched afforestation drive in fi ve Ganga basin states – Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal.

#The campaign has been initiated as part of the Forest Interventions in Ganga (FIG) component of Namami Gange programme.

#State Forest Departments of these states have been made the nodal agencies for the smooth and effective execution of the campaign.

#In order to implement the afforestation project in a scientifi c manner, Forest Research Institute (FRI), Dehradun was assigned the project to prepare a Detailed Project Report (DPR) on the basis of which the State Forest Departments would carry out their plantation activities.

#The FRI report provides a multi-disciplinary approach with potential plantation and treatment models. Considering the type of natural ecosystem, identifi cation of native vegetation, soil conditions and agro-climatic zones, potential models of various types have been developed.

#Besides maintenance of the ecological and geological integrities, the implementation plan aims to contribute towards the Clean Ganga Mission, by improving the base flow and fi ltration of the ground water pollution.
