Integrated community-based Adaption to Climate Change through Afforestation & Reforestation in Sunderban & Coastal Greenbelts

Ziaur Rahman June 14, 2022

As trees grow, they help stop climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the air, storing carbon in the trees and soil, and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere. And for good reason, trees help to absorb carbon from the atmosphere, maintain moist and fertile soil for agriculture, clean water, prevent mudslides, provide healthy habitat for wildlife, and offer many additional benefits – for nature, people, and biodiversity. “A paper published a couple of years ago showed that reforestation could reduce U.S. annual carbon emissions from all sources by 10 to 15 percent. Forests are carbon sinks; they cycle damaging carbon out of the atmosphere and transform it into biomass through photosynthesis. Afforestation can slow the impact of climate change while also addressing other environmental issues, such as barren land and soil erosion.
