Coal India's Endeavour to Enhance Green Cover
The compensatory afforestation project by CIL is expected to help expand the country's green cover by over 2900 hectares.
New Delhi: Coal India Limited (CIL), the state-owned coal mining company of India, has been making efforts to enhance the country's green cover. In accordance with the ACA (Additional Compensatory Afforestation) standards, CIL has identified about 2900 hectares of afforested non-forest de-coaled land for compensatory afforestation.
ACA is a method of proactive afforestation that is grown in advance on non-forest land. This method helps to ensure that there is no net loss of forest cover when coal mining takes place. ACA has been shown to be an effective way to restore degraded land and improve biodiversity.Read Also : NSIC organises 2nd India-Taiwan SME Cooperation Forum
