Titre : Afforestation clean development mechanism project in Northen India. Haryana Community Forestry Project

Pays : Inde

Durée : 1997-2010

Partenaires : Haryana State Forestry Department

Contexte
In Northen India, the State of Haryana is surrounded by the severely eroded Shivalik and Aravalli hill ranges in the north and south respectively. The western part of the State bordering the Rajasthan desert is semi-arid with prevalent sand dunes. In the central plains, the soils are affected by salinity, alkalinity and water logging. A significant portion of community land in the entire State is degraded due to population pressure, over-cutting and over-grazing of vegetation.

Objectif
Improve the natural environment of the State of Haryana through sustainable management of natural resources and active participation of the village communities in eleven State districts.
