Mission Prakriti recognised by UNFCCC for Sustainable Land Use

Mission Prakriti is globally recognised by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) through the Marrakech partnership for our work around sustainable land use. As a partner, we help lower emissions and increase resilience against climate impacts in India. 

Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action

The Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action was instituted by the UNFCCC as part of COP 22 to operationalise the goals of the Paris Agreement. Its main objective is to strengthen collaboration between governments and key stakeholders to immediately lower emissions and increase resilience against climate impacts. 

In the run up to COP 26 this year, organisations from various countries participate to achieve ground level action across nine major themes ranging from Climate Finance, to Sustainable Land Use. The Global Partners will present their unique local challenges and action taken on these broad themes at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (UNFCCC COP 26), scheduled to take place between 1-12 November 2021, in Glasgow, UK.

Our Role

Mission Prakriti goes beyond sustainability – it is towards Regeneration. We are looking at regenerating the ecology, reviving economic prospects of livelihood for farmers and establishing social equalities for rural communities in India. Mission Prakriti is a contemporary model which aligns conservation efforts towards the ecology with the economic development of unprivileged communities in India. In just a year since inception, our projects span over 5000 acres in Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, Rajasthan and Maharashtra, where we handhold farmers and local communities in restoring their unproductive lands and in generating value from forest produce.

Through this partnership, we aim to represent India’s unique set of challenges and opportunities associated with land use change, at a global level while implementing viable solutions for Climate Adaptation and Mitigation at the local level. Through our efforts, we help enable environmental, economic and social system transformation, promoting higher ambition of all stakeholders to collectively strive for the 1.5 °C temperature goal and a carbon-neutral, resilient world.
