Trees can stop floods

Down to Earth - - LETTERS -

This is with ref­er­ence to "How to plant trees for de­vel­op­ment" (16-31 May, 2015). It will be won­der­ful to adopt tree plan­ta­tion in the wa­ter­shed ar­eas of the Ganga. This will help dur­ing floods and land­slides. We have a few projects in Nepal that are work­ing to­wards this end. Both In­dia and Nepal should join hands and part­ner in such de­vel­op­ment ini­tia­tives.
