New Delhi: The government is now mulling the creation of a 1,400 kilometre stretch of ‘Green Wall’ across Gujarat to Delhi-Haryana. The green belt which will stretch from Porbandar to Panipat will help in restoring degraded land along the Aravali hill range across Gujarat, Haryana and Delhi. 

News reports quoted an official as saying that the idea had been part of the agenda of the recently held conference of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification. 

The report also said that the plan, which had been in the pipeline for nearly a decade, is looking to restore 26 million hectares of degraded land by 2030.

In 2016, an ISRO reported revealed that over 50% of the land in Gujarat, Rajasthan and Delhi had been degraded. 

The move has left several netizens excited. Many have said that this would go on to become yet another success story of the Modi 2.0 government.
