Volunteers in India have planted more than 66 million trees in 12 hours in a record-breaking environmental drive. About 1.5 million people were involved in this huge environmental campaign and tree saplings were placed along the Narmada River in the state of Madhya Pradesh. India is committed under the Paris Agreement in increasing its forest of 5 million hectares before 2030 to combat climate change. The tree-planting campaign was organised by the Madhya Pradesh government with 24 districts of the Narmada river basin chosen as planting sites to increase the saplings’ chances of growing. The volunteers planted more than 20 different types of trees. India is the world’s 3rd largest generator of carbon emissions. Last month, Prime Minister Narendra Modi confirmed India’s commitment to the Paris climate accord after the US withdrew from the agreement. Click here to read the full story on the Independent
