GLAM WORLD BAMBOO AND THE UNITED NATIONS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

The United Nations General Assembly in September 2015 saw a new set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) come into affect. Although the final goals will depend upon ratification from member countries, the published list of 17 are a good indication of the goals and associated targets that will be used to frame member country’s’ policies and agendas through 2030.

Glam World through Moonlight Initiative is planning to be ahead of the curve. We will work around a framework of environmental protection and restoration.

In implementing bamboo projects, the impact will be seen in the following:

 

1. NO POVERTY:

End poverty in all its forms everywhere through income generation.

 

2. NO HUNGER:

End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.

3. GOOD HEALTH:

Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.

8. GOOD JOBS AND ECONOMIC GROWTH:

Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.

9. INNOVATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE:

Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation.

12. RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION:

Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns.

13. CLIMATE ACTION:

Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.

15. LIFE ON LAND:

Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss.

In conclusion, all our community projects through Moonlight Initiative will abide by these sustainable development goals. Moonlight initiative will be holding training’s which will consist of topics under SDGs, climate change and bamboo which are under the realization of Vision 2030, Agenda 2063, Big Four Agenda and project and management.

We call upon willing partners to reach out and make big happen!

  1. My name is Michael Landry and I am an African living in America. Currently, I reside in New Orleans, LA. New Orleans is facing an ecological issues, which is rising sea level, that are sweeping away wetlands. The City of New Orleans predicts the city will be under water within 50 years (20yrs worst case scenario). A few issues that are severely devastating the living conditions for black americans, especially in New Orleans are unemployment, healthy foods, and living conditions. Not too long ago, my landlord introduced me to an elderly woman in Alabama that owns a nice amount of untapped land. Within the land there is about ½ acre of Moso bamboo growing naturally. A few associates and I have assisted her with tilling, planting and harvesting various fruits and vegetables. We also cut down bamboo and used it to provide products to sell to customers or advocates of the marijuana industry. Realizing this product is the bare minimum we can use bamboo for, I decided to do more research on the properties and characteristics associated with bamboo material. After reading various articles regarding projects, such as, community bamboo nurseries, I believe bamboo material can solve the major issues black americans are facing everyday. My goal is to introduce community bamboo nurseries to solve unemployment, access to healthy food options and improve living conditions for the poor and middle class. It is imperative that African community whether national or international shares information, resources and technology in growing and adding value to bamboo in order to boost national wealth and improve ecosystem health. I understand the Uganda Bamboo Association mission is to identify local and international bamboo resources and enterprises. It is a goal of mine to meet with the UBA in Kampala in order to lay strategies for bamboo seedlings in order to provide products and services nationally specifically for the African communities.

    1. Thank you for reaching out Michael. Glad to be in this vision together. There’s a tremendous ongoing Bamboo research in Kenya. We’ll be posting some of the findings on our blog posts. Stay tuned.
