Environmental News from Europe:
India and Germany inked a joint declaration on Forest Landscape Restoration, Agroecology, and Sustainable Natural Resource Management on Monday as part of the Sixth India-Germany Inter-Governmental Consultations (IGC).
The Joint Declaration of Intent on Forest Landscape Restoration was signed virtually between India’s Environment Minister, Bhupender Yadav, and Steffi Lemke, Germany’s Minister for Environment and Nature Conservation.
The agreement will provide the platform to further advance the partnership and support between the two countries in areas such as conservation and restoration, climate protection, and conservation of biodiversity, the government said.
Under this initiative, Germany intends to provide up to 300 million euros by the year 2025 for financial and technical cooperation for projects.
According to officials, the two countries plan to establish a joint research center supported by financial cooperation to develop and share cutting-edge knowledge with practitioners from India, Germany, and other countries. This will seek to facilitate value-added technology and scientific transfer in order to address the changing agenda of agroecology.
