  • Prior to 1995, only 4.5% of geographical area of HUDA was under green cover. now the green cover increased to 26%
  • A total of 154 lakh saplings were planted, protected and nurtured
  • A spatial area of 19336 ha is brought under Green Cover
  • 320 km of roadside strip plantations have been developed covering 60 peri-urban villages
  • Of particular interest is to note that low-income group housing areas where interest is passive special emphasis was given to introduce parks and recreation areas.
  • HMDA has taken up afforestation in 32 degraded reserve forest blocks in and around HMDA area covering an area of 2648 hectares and has brought them under effective Green cover with a mixtures of species simulating natural forest and useful to the local villagers giving free access for fodder, twig fuel and medicinal usufructs.
  • Green cover in and around any developing city is an asset as it would reduce pollution increase ground water recharge and improve the aesthetic value. HMDA (erstwhile HUDA) has taken efforts along with its other greening partners, the then MCH, HMWS&SB & Forest Department to increase the green cover to 26%

   Social Strategies:

  • Participatory appraisal techniques got good response in understanding the needs, skills and ability of marginal segments of urban and peri-urban population in creation and maintenance of tree and forage resources. It helped in developing a satisfying arrangement for the protection of plantation by community in return for the right to enjoy products.
  • Though charge-free sapling planting was done in residential colonies to start with the awareness building was successful to the point that the residential welfare associations started partially meeting the costs of tree guards and maintenance of plantation even in common areas.
  • Momentum so acquired is fully exploited to advance the program to other colonies.
  • Public hearings held with Resident Welfare Associations and Voluntary organisations
  • Mass awareness generation programmes like one-day-one-lakh / two lakh planting, involving the Chief Minister, school children, Public representatives, Institutions, Self Help Groups and other Govt. departments etc. kept the awareness levels high and what started as an inducement-based participatory activity soon became demand-driven.
