The theme for World Environment Day 2024, hosted globally in Saudi Arabia, is Land restoration, desertification & drought resilience with the slogan ‘Our land Our Future’ . This brings a limelight on the land restoring, rebuilding & stabilizing practices, of which, afforestation & reforestation occupy the pivotal position.

Species, namely, Peltophorumpterocarpum, Azadirachta indica, Milettia pinnata& Cassia semia were planted. These native species of Odisha, as well as of Asia in a broad sense, have a capability to grow in a wide range of soil and can prevent soil erosion to a great extent besides providing various other aesthetic purposes & economical products like botanicals, medicinals, oils, etc.
