Shelley Shaurya, who was part of the Gujarat Lions team of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and played Ranji Trophy for Manipur, has given an unmatched formula to strengthen the economy of the tribals. The Modi government is also implementing their formula. Through the theory given by 25-year-old Shelley Shaurya on Bamboonomics, bamboo can be controlled along with good earning from bamboo.
196 Countries Participating in COP-14
Actually, Modi government wants to make the tribals competent and prosperous by implementing bamboo-based economy. This is the reason that in 2017, bamboo was removed from the category of trees and declared as grass. In view of the growing demand from bamboo, the Ministry of Tribal Ministry plans to introduce environmentally friendly Bamboonomics in COP-14 (Conference of Parties) today.
Shelley Shaurya is representing India at Bamboonomics in this conference. Significantly, COP-14 has been organized as part of the campaign to save the world from increasing desertification. Representatives of 196 countries of the world are participating in this conference.
On September 9, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also reached this conference going on from 2 September. During this time he said that India will increase its target to make 21 million hectares of barren land fertile by 2030, to 26 million hectares. To tackle desertification, Modi said that between 2015 and 2017, there has been an increase of 8 lakh hectares in the area of trees and forests in India.
Shelley, a graduate in economics from St. Stephen’s College in Delhi, has gained the most benefit from the richers she has received at Bamboonomics, which leaves the North Eastern states deprived of many plans and developments due to geographical conditions.
In such a situation, the bamboo-based economy has emerged as a new hope of progress for the people there. When Prime Minister Narendra Modi removed the bamboo from the Indian Forest Act 1927 and informed the grass then he had a dream of welfare of tribals. To pursue that dream, Shelley Shaurya also wrote and researched a book called Bamboonomics: The Tall Grass Comes of Age ‘which the Tribal Cooperative Marketing Development Federation of India (TRIFED) has secured in TRIFED.
Research in association with TRIFED
Prime Minister Narendra Modi also reached this conference on 9 September. During this, he had announced that India will increase its target to make 21 million hectares of barren land fertile by 2030, to 26 million hectares. To tackle desertification, Modi said that between 2015 and 2017, there has been an increase of 8 lakh hectares in the area of trees and forests in India.
The research that Shelley has done in collaboration with TRIFED on behalf of the Tribal Ministry of the Government of India, is inexpensive and marketable. Because of this, it is associated with the Jan Dhan Yojana of Modi government. Also shows a new way to save from desertification.
Actually, they can get good profits from bamboo grown by tribals. For this, TRIFED is being made aware to convert bamboo into babu charcoal and activated charcoal in tribal dominated area. In such a situation, the bamboo which was sold for 40 to 80 rupees can be converted into activated charcoal and sold for two to two and a half thousand. Activated charcoal is most needed by the FMGC industry. Also, Shelley’s theory will also help India achieve the target set under the Bonn Challenge and 4P1000 Initiative.
National Bamboo played a Critical Role
TRIFED MD Praveer Krishna told that from today the Tribal Ministry of the Government of India is going to run one of the largest tribal campaigns in the world. In this, the National Bamboo Mission with a capacity of 1203 crore budget will be very important. Shelley has played an important role in this mission.
Shelley has told in research how the best waste can be used to make bamboo products. Earlier 80 to 88% was thrown or wasted during manufacturing, in which case it will be utilized properly. Also, the production capacity of the soil will be increased by the charcoal that will come from Bamboo Charcoal.The MD stated that the International German organization GIZ has joined TRIFED today. The path of the global market has opened. The tribal products which were till today only in India are going to spread all over the world. Explain that 136 types of bamboo species found in India were listed under the Bamaboo Mission. In this, only 10 species were said to be suitable for business, while Shelley has described 126 varieties of bamboo as useful for business.
