It is today’s true scenario that the entire earth is in extensive danger and facing increasing global warming, unfavourable changes in the climate, increasing sea level, reducing forest cover and many more environmental issues every new day, and believe, reducing forest is the most dangerous issue for the entire planet.
Despite all environmental threats, forests, and especially tropical rainforests, are still under siege by human activity.
“We’re cutting down more than 15 billion trees in a year – that’s almost 500 trees in a second, 29,000 in a minute, 1.7 in million an hour, and 41 million in a day. So, although tree planting is a valuable part of tackling climate change, it won’t be effective unless we reduce the number, cut down in the first place, and make big changes to the way we live.”
So, if everyone on the planet, planted a single tree, it would be a powerful symbolic act and will work. And if we kept on planting them and stopped cutting them down, it could go a long way to protecting and safeguarding our world.”
Here also some surprising facts areas, government refilling/ reforestation projects having only 40% survivability and out of the only 60% actual plantation of committed, on the ground for example, if the plan 1000 tree, then actually plant only 600 and survivability will be no more than 240 trees.
Most of the refilling work is being done by NGO’s, social communities and plantation partner agencies of the governments so the direct involvement of individual is very poor in such drives.
After studying the implementation methodology and performance measurement techniques, in terms of three-parameter Transparency, Traceability and Sustainability (survivability) found really outrageous facts that no one is targeting these parameters and just performing everything without tracking & measuring actual performance. And to confirm the statement, we can opt for any plantation drives in India and check the figures, actual versus claimed.
We studied the execution method, performance measurement method and on-ground effectiveness of 20 best & most active NGO, working for tree plantation across the globe and identified the above-mentioned parameters to ensure the success of the new generation of the plantation.
With the use of emerging tracking technologies in this most basic work, we “Ek Kadam”, can do refilling the earth successfully in a result-oriented way.
China is the best example of the plantation of 40 billion trees successfully. It’s better to understand their module to overcome our mistakes while mass plantations.
To better understand all three parameters, here is some questioner to be asked by donors, said Ek Kadam Sansthan.
