Every $1 invested in land restoration, provides a $7-$30 return in economic benefits
30% of India's lands are fast degrading. A land is considered degraded when there is loss in productivity, biodiversity or economic value. This can be caused by climate (droughts, floods etc.) or human-induced factors (industrialisation, change in land-use etc.)
More than half of the degraded land is either agricultural land or designated forest lands. This degradation weakens our first line of defence against a rapidly changing climate.
SayTrees undertakes tree plantations and water conservation projects across several Indian cities, and designs their interventions with the local communities — and is tailored to suit the local biodiversity and ecological constraints.
