Efforts to decrease temperatures in Andhra Pradesh


  • The government has chalked out plans to plant more saplings to bring down temperatures in the state.
  • A WHO study says that access to vegetated areas such as parks, open spaces, and playgrounds has been associated with better perceived general health and reduced stress levels.
  • The government also plans to improve access to public open space to increase levels of physical activity that have mental health benefits and reduce healthcare and other costs.
  • The flagship programmes Vanamahotsavam, Janmabhoomi and Neeru-Chettu stand for this cause.
