Desert is an amazing geographical place. It’s mostly empty of thick vegetation and also has harsh climates. There can be deserts of cold and hot winds. India as a country has cold desert in the North and hot and dry desert in the West. Deserts support an amazing array of small animals and plants. Blackbucks, rabbits, birds, snakes, leopards, lizards, cats and many more. The area that the desert has is huge and the population very less. Project desert aims to preserve these deserts from becoming empty of trees, shrubs, plants and animals by having an array of things to be done in the Thar desert and cold desert of Leh.
Planting trees like babool, neem, shrubs, etc shall help in increasing the vegetation and make it more green. Thus helping more animals, reptiles and insects to live, The food chain shall be balanced with these efforts. The project aims to make more areas of the deserts green and livable for both humans and animals. Be a part of this unique project and plant trees for carbon fixing as well as the environment.
Impact in Numbers
Number of trees to be planted 200,000
Carbon Fixed 150 Kgs per tree.
CO2 reduction from atmosphere by 550 Kgs per tree.
Farmers to be positively impacted 6000
The trees that are being planted are selected based on the needs of the animals and birds in that area. Depending on the soil, climate temperature, the trees that are most suited are selected for the plantation. Every tree that is planted is different and it helps in maintaining the biodiversity.. Every tree helps to preserve the life of animals and birds.
- The trees planted shall help in controlling the soil erosion.
- The project shall be able to increase the number of trees that are less in that area.
- Increase in the overall green cover of the country.
Positive impact on farmers
- Farmers get high quality saplings to plant in their lands adjacent to the forests. Fruit trees, Timber trees, Medicinal plants.
- Increase in the farmer income by 10% over a 10 year period of time.
- Better economic conditions of the farmers help in getting education for the children, nutrition for the family.
About the project
The project is an ongoing project to help achieve increased greenery in India. Carbon Fixing of 0.25 MT per person is the goal. Under this project, sites are identified and farmer groups contacted for planting trees on their lands close to the forest areas. High quality of seedling of fruit trees, timber trees, medicinal plants, forest trees are identified and they are then planted on the lands of the farmers. The farmers are explained on how to raise them, best practices for the same and benefits that they shall be getting in the next 2 years, 5 years, 10 years and 20 years. A periodic visit of the experts is done for the same so that they can monitor the progress and also guide the farmers. The current condition of the farmers and forest cover is recorded and stored on e platforms. This is updated every time of the visit so that the improvement can be noted and measured. The project keeps on identifying new sites and farmer groups so that the benefit can be spread to all.
The trees are geotagged. The area boundary is marked using GPS. Farmer details along with the images. All the data is captured and stored through mobile apps directly from the field. Carbon fixing that is happening yearly is calculated by using the equations developed by the experts for different species in app and reports. Total transparency is maintained in getting the data, storing the data and analysing the data.
The impact that is being created by the project for wildlife and farmers is measured. All data is captured in regular intervals and the same is analysed by comparing with the previous data on the same parameters calculated a few months ago. The change is measured against the planned results.
The project reports are prepared and sent to the contributors. The report covers the following
1) Trees status as on the last visit made
2) Any mortality in the trees planted
3) Carbon fixed in MT from the start of the project
4) Quantity of fruits that are being produced by the planted trees
5) Economic impact on the farmers.
6) Ecological impact created.
