India is working towards restoring 2.6 crore hectares of degraded land by 2030,” Prime Minister Modi recently said while speaking at UN ‘High-Level Dialogue on Desertification, Land Degradation & Drought.
The world as a global village is currently focusing upon on turning degraded land into healthy land wherein restoration is the path towards bringing economic resilience, creating jobs, raising incomes and increasing food security.
The land resource is important because humans not only live but also perform all economic activities on land. It supports wildlife, natural vegetation, transport and communication activities.
India has identified achieving land degradation neutrality as means to recover biodiversity while restoring such degraded land to enhance agriculture and benefit farmers.
India’s target of restoring 2.6 crore hectares of degraded land by 2030 will also contribute to India’s commitment to achieving an additional carbon sink of 2.5 to 3 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent.
