A study led by researchers at the University of Birmingham and UCL showed that the South Asian cities with exposure to air pollution recorded an increase in the number of people dying prematurely. An estimated 100,000 premature deaths are recorded in India with its major cities including Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Chennai, Surat, Pune and Ahmedabad.

According to the World Air Quality Report, Delhi is the world’s most polluted capital for the 4th consecutive year, with pollution rising almost 15% over the previous year. 

In addition, we are also facing climate change and global warming and in such a situation solution-based approach is the need of the hour. The Miyawaki method is one such solution that allows us to create mini forests in cities with scarce land.

In the miyawaki method, trees (only native species) are planted close to each other in the same area to save space and saplings help each other to grow and block sunlight from reaching the ground. As saplings receive sunlight from the top and grow upward, rather than sideways.

The best part of the technique is that after three years saplings become maintenance-free or self-sustainable and also ensures 10 times faster growth of the plant and 30 times denser than usual.
