Landscape-based catchment treatment plan to achieve carbon sink target
#landscape-based catchment treatment plan is being worked upon by Union Government to store carbon. Ministry: Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change
#To fulﬁ ll commitments made under Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs), of Paris Agreement India anticipated that it might not be able to meet that through forests alone. It is now looking at the soil of catchment areas as an additional alternative to create an additional carbon sink the equivalent of 2.5 billion to 3 billion tonnes carbon dioxide by 2030.
#A carbon sink is a system that absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
#Trees are natural carbon sinks, while underground reservoirs in form of underground caves can also be ﬁ lled artiﬁ cially and used as carbon sinks.This technique is called Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).
#Further , carbon sequestration can also be done by storing atmospheric carbon in soil in form of organic carbon.
