Guinness record for green cover
Uttar Pradesh is planning to help India storm into the Guinness records by planting close to a million trees. The effort is also to concur with the Paris Climate Change agreement that mandates signatories to increase its green cover. 800,000 volunteers took part in the exercise earlier this week where they attempted to plant 50 million trees in 24 hours. When verified by Guinness, it will be a world record for trees planted in one day. It is worthwhile noting that Pakistan holds the record till date for the same feat.The state was hoping to set a world record for trees planted in one day.

Paris Climate deal
The Indian government had earmarked $6.2 billion for increasing forestation in line with agreements made at the Paris Climate Change Summit in 2015. Paris Climate Agreement is an agreement dealing with greenhouse gases emissions mitigation, adaptation and finance starting in the year 2020. Representatives of 195 countries at the 21st Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC in Paris adopted by consensus on 12 December 2015.


The Logical Indian wishes the Uttar Pradesh government good luck in its bid to break the record and more importantly in for taking a big step towards increasing green cover.
