#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.
