After floods, Kochi pulls all stops to go green, becomes part of ‘Cities4Forest’
In an attempt to protect the green covers in the urban centre, Kochi joins Cities4Forests project in collaboration with World Resources Institute (WRI), Pilot Projects and Revolve.
Cities4Forests is a movement to catalyze political, social, and economic support among city governments and urban residents to integrate the inner, nearby, and faraway forests into city development plans and programs. Participants share an aspiration to help reduce deforestation, restore forests (including more trees in cities), and manage forests more sustainably.
“Kochi had always been enthusiastic to work with WRI. As we talked about the project, Kochi corporation was happy to join,” said Jaya Dhindaw, Director of WRI India while responding to The Woke Journal.
