It is nice project and should be implemented at the earliest. These areas are without proper utilization in Pakistan and if forested they can be utilized efficiently as well as could help in the reduction of CO2.

I support this proposal because it seems me complete in all aspects and implementable as well as it is effective in the Green house gases reductions efficiently on long term basis.

Barani areas of Pakistan like Khushab District can serve as timber mine of Pakistan as well as carbon storage pools.

As we all know that Pakistan is the country with meager forest cover of 2.9%. So,to enhance vegetation cover, it is dire need of time to support such type of projects.

Please consider: Ectomycorrhizal Fungi www.nifg.org.uk/ecto.htm Ectomycorrhizal Fungi are, economically, one of the most important groups of fungi. ... Thus in forest management, if we do not manage for the mycorrhizal fungi Successive pot cultures reveal high species richness of arbuscular endomycorrhizal fungi in arid ecosystems www.nrcresearchpress.com/doi/abs/10.1139/b96-225#.UZPFgYKmj4Y Some occurrences of vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhiza in natural and disturbed ecosystems of the Red Desert www.nrcresearchpress.com/doi/abs/10.1139/b79-079#.UZPF0YKmj4Y Patterns of species composition and distribution of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in arid regions of southwestern North America and Namibia, Africa www.nrcresearchpress.com/doi/abs/10.1139/b99-183?journalCode=cjb1#.UZPFUYKmj4Y Mycorrhizal fungi as drivers of ecosystem processes in heathland and boreal forest biomes www.nrcresearchpress.com/doi/abs/10.1139/b04-123#.UZPEtYKmj4Y Influence of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and salinity on growth, biomass, and mineral nutrition of Acacia auriculiformis link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s00374-003-0636-z#page-1 The contributions of mycorrhizal fungi to the determination of plant community structure link.springer.com/article/10.1007/BF00000091

I Think a research on the assessment of carbon storage capacity of fast growing trees in the desertic/barani areas, where water is available, should be carried out in this project.

Well written document addresses all four points. Describes the feasibility, selects a set of items that would be implemented in a local area, and notes the impact on climate change. No supporting pictures in it though, which would help. Relatively small project at $65,000

This proposal works on a very small scale of 100 ha, regarding planting eucalypts on degraded, very dry lands which are marginal in Thal desert, and salty. Requires farmers to pay 20 percent of 1 acre planting costs + plant 2nd acre themselves. Are these costs and is this model feasible for these farmers in this context? Relative to other proposals in the contest, this proposal had low climate benefits.
