Question

How does the following factor contribute to the environmental crisis in India? What problem does it pose for the government?

Reduction of forest coverage

Solution

Reduction of forest coverage

The need for reduction of forest coverage or deforestation arises due to the growing demand for land, wood, rise in population and river valley projects. Deforestation leads to reduction in oxygen level in air, soil erosion, climate change and global warming due to rise in the CO2 level. Thus, measures are needed to promote afforestation, opening up of sanctuaries and national park such as Jim Corbett National Park.
