NITI Aayog organized a national-level workshop on bamboo development on 30th December 2021
The workshop was conducted both online and offline.
Through the workshop, participants were taught about all components of the bamboo value chain—plantation, production, processing, standardization, and utilization—in order to develop strategies and a roadmap for the development of a circular economy in the sector.
The workshop also discussed national and international best practices
Minister of State (Independent Charge) of the Ministry of Science and Technology and Earth Sciences, Dr. Jitendra Singh characterized bamboo as ‘green gold’, recognizing its crucial role in uplifting the Indian economy in the post-Covid scenario.
Bamboo can be used for making bio-ethanol, which would reduce dependence on imported fossil fuel.
Bamboo is also very beneficial for the construction sector.
Niti Aayog also talked about setting up BIS standards of bamboo and FSSAI certification of bamboo products, linking Kisan Rail to bamboo, GI tagging of bamboo products, and the development of a nationwide knowledge information system on bamboo.
