The Trends of Bamboo to Sustainable Development in Noklak, Nagaland

Nyamkoi | B. Priyanka [2] | F Lalkhumliana

Abstract: Noklak is a district in Nagaland inhabited by the Khiamniungan tribe. Geographical isolation and poor road connectivity have kept them in abject poverty for many years, and the population mostly depends on the bio resources that come from bamboo for their survival. Bamboo plays a dominant role in every aspect of life, beginning with the sharp bamboo blades prepared to remove the umbilical cord of a new - born baby until the dead are buried by erecting a bamboo fence at the burial ground. It has been noted that the maximum number of farmers are engaged in the production of bamboo - based articles; it is a successful enterprise for doubling household income and provides safety net. The region has tremendous potential for bamboo - related development activities, and therefore, addressing the problems of road connectivity and marketing will offer a pathway to drive people out of poverty. Bamboo provides a wide range of goods and services to rural communities, reducing their carbon footprint and creating an opportunity to advance many sustainable development goals.
