How Environment and Forestry Department Should Work In India?

  • Scientists estimate a safe oxygen consumption of 50 liters per hour for a human. Meanwhile, a leaf gives off about five milliliters of oxygen per hour. A person would need to be in a room with about ten thousand leaves. About 300 to 500 plants would produce the right amount of oxygen, but it’s much harder to estimate the amount of carbon dioxide the plants absorb, especially if every time a person breathes out, they inhibit oxygen production. To be safe, don’t get into an airlock without bringing about seven hundred potted plants with you. ( Source:
  • Waste lands
  • Desert areas
  • Lands having sparse or least population density and others.
  • Lands in proximity to water bodies and resources
  • Identification of stretch that can be taken under green rejuvenation program
  • Identification of stretches uniformly distributed across the country so that carbon sink problem doesn't occur anywhere.
  • Clearing the stretches of pollution and settlements ( providing alternative settlements and using bio-remediation tools and techniques)
  • Preparing the soil conditions, land water density and other for growth of plants.
  • Selecting the species most beneficial and suitable for growth in the specific areas.
