States identify thousands of  hectares of ‘degraded ‘ forest land to be offered for earning green credits

Weeks after the Union Environment ministry Announced  the rules for its Green Credit Programme ( GCP ) , 10 states have identified parcels of degraded forest land , totalling about 3853 hectare  , will be available for individuals , groups , public , private units to earn and potentially trade green credit .

The green Credit programme shall  incentivise environmental green credit through market based mechanisms  and generate green credit .

The credit will be generated in several ways .

     Under the scheme  , registered and approved entities  can pay to finance afforestation projects in specific tracts of degraded forest or wasteland . Two years after planting and after proper evaluation  – each planted tree could be worth one ‘ green credit ‘ .

     Offset Obligation – The green credits can be used by companies which have diverted forest land for non forest purposes  .

     Companies can also finance the forest department and give the land to forest .

     In several states including Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh , where large tracts have been historically diverted foe mining, getting contiguous non forest land for compensatory afforestation is challenging .
