The nation’s environment minister has announced that the government will invest US$200 million in protecting its forests and will also report the amount of carbon emissions stored by the forest. With 65 million hectares or 20 percent of India's land covered by trees,the fund will be used to conserve and restore vegetation, control forest fires and strengthen forestry infrastructure.

Plans include extending to another 6 million hectares over the next 6 years. Kudos India for your planet-cooling investment to preserve the treasured lungs of Mother Earth. May the lush green forests flourish across yours and many other lands.
