Answer from Praveen Bhargav, Wildlife First: While it would be difficult for us to comment specifically on Nagar Vana Udyan scheme, the key issue in our view is about allocating CAMPA funds for urban tree planting projects. Please see this published article which argues why CAMPA funds must be utilised to consolidate large forest landscapes instead. Also, in Aug 2015, Conservation India ran a public campaign asking that the Compensatory Afforestation (CAF) Bill 2015 be recast. Thanks.
