Correct Answer - Option 4 : Sukhomajri

The correct answer is Sukhomajri.

  • Sukhomajri village has shown that it is possible to reverse land degradation.

  • The restoration of degraded land in the village of Sukhomajri in Haryana.
  • The village adopted rainwater harvesting in the 1970s and ensured a reliable water supply.
  • As a result, it was able to grow trees in the land that was earlier barren.
  • The tree density increase Sukhomajri is increased from 13 per hectare in 1976 to 1272 per hectare in 1992.

 

  • Land degradation is a process in which land is affected by human-induced processes.
  • This process is seen as a disturbance to the land which is deleterious.
  • Loss of fertility, soil erosion, waterlogging, salinity, floods, and droughts are some of the major aspects of land degradation.
