This story looks at how the Meenangadi panchayat in Kerala's Wayanad district is planning to bring carbon emissions down to zero - through a series of environment-friendly methods and techniques for sustainable development.

This panchayat has thought about at a carbon neutral programme.

They hope that the number of new trees they have planted should be enough to sequester the excess carbon.
