It will be helpful not only at the State but also at the national level for analysing role of forests towards India’s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). Forest department can evaluate quality of their forest and accordingly they can take further actions for improvement of forest cover and contribute to achieving the Forest related NDC target of 2.5 to 3 billion tons of CO2 by 2030.
