Strategies for sustainable development through bamboo

The transformation of rural agrarian economies includes development that is cleaner, more harmonious and more sustainable. This needs an enabling environment to drive efforts towards livelihoods generation, poverty alleviation and community empowerment; efforts that address ecological concerns.

The Sustainable Development Goals are a big step forward for achieving equitable and environmentally sustainable economic development. They recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and addresses a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.

Bamboo is a resource that addresses six of the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and offers a range of social, economic and ecological benefits. Technological innovations in this field will help unleash the potential of bamboo for creating job opportunities and driving social transformation.

Enabling policy, a regulatory environment and community awareness will collectively play a critical role for success of social enterprises working in the bamboo sector. And, the twin objectives of sustainable development and poverty eradication require close collaboration between the government, civil society organizations, the private sector and local communities. Because, the transformation required now needs to be technologically, economically and socially viable.
