Carbon management is a serious concern confronting the world today. Since climate change is ongoing and has direct impacts on the existence and vitality of species diversity and ecosystem as a whole. Plantation forests that have the ability to adapt to climate change can enhance the contribution of reduced deforestation and forest degradation. Eco-restoration through plantation forests are the most effective technique to adapt climate change and can subsequently enhance the potential of these areas in reducing emission of greenhouse gases. An ecosystem approach needs to be adopted for restoration of degraded lands and biodiversity. The present paper deals with the review of carbon management through encouraging plantation forests on degraded forest and mined lands to mitigate the emission of greenhouse gases and improve the productivity of degraded lands.
