Sustainable green community

  1. 1. Plan  of   Sustainable  Green  Communi3es   By     Aung  Kyi  (Ph.  D)  &  Ye  Tun  Tun  (Ph.  D)  
  2. 2. Ø Location - located between the Bago Yoma and Shan Yoma mountain ranges Ø Area - 7,054.37 km2 (2,723.71 sq mi) Ø Population - 924,608 Ø Climate - tropical savannah v  Singapore only has about 27 sq miles with almost concrete areas Map of Nay Pyi Taw
  3. 3. Objec8ves   •  to  promote  environmental  sustainability  with   increasing  food  security  for  our  communi8es   Environment   From  endangered  to   Greener,  Healthier     Empowerment   From  green  ac3vity  to   community  empowerment   Food  Security   Local  security  to  world   security   Equity   From  poverty  to  financial   &  social  security     Energy   From  hazardous  to  clean   fuels  
  4. 4. Features  of  Green  Communi3es   •  sustainable  produc3on  of  food  (organic,  biodynamic   farming  and  sustainable  prac3ces  for  livestock  and   fisheries)   •  the  conserva3on  and  sustainable  use  of  biodiversity;   •   sustainable  water  supply  systems,  water  and  sanita3on,   and  waste  management;   •   low-­‐carbon  energy  (especially  renewable  energy  and   resource  of  energy  efficient  technologies);   •  sustainable  transport  system  (e.g.  public  transport);   •   sustainable  tourism;   •  green  jobs,  sustainable  lifestyles  and  livelihoods  that   provide  social  jus3ce  and  equality  and  establish  concrete   measures  in  order  to  progress  and  prosperity;   •  Trees  and  green  space;   •  Green  Building;   •  Recycling  and  waste  reduc3on   •  Green  Educa3on   •  Innova3on  
  5. 5. Components  of  Green   Communi8es   •  Mul8stakeholders  (Gov.,  NGOs,  Farmers,  Public)     •  Forma3on  of  social  groups            e.g.  1.  Farmers  groups  (crop,  livestock,  fisheries)                            2.  Consumer’  groups  (commodity  specific)                            3.  Producers’  groups                            4.  Distributors’  groups                            5.  Conflict  resolving  groups              All  decision  making  process  will  be  based  on   community’  needs  
  6. 6. Micro  financing  (cri3cal  role)      Green  credit  will  be  divided  into  green  ac3vi3es            e.g.  normal  involvement,  major  contribu3on,  innova3ve              a.    Those  green  groups  with  more  contribu3on  and                        par3cipa3on  in  green  growth  will  be  provided  much                          more  finance.              b.  Those  who  gave  nega3ve  impacts  will  be  rolled  out                        by  green  standards/green  ethics  
  7. 7. Ac3vi3es  of  Green  Communi3es   •  Mainly  based  on  agriculture   with  emphasizes  on     Mul3ple  crop  cul3va3on,     Food  produc3on,     Processing,     Distribu3on,  and   Accessed  to  consumers,  as  well  as        Food  waste  disposing  which  is          integral  to  a  well-­‐run  food   system    
  8. 8. Mul3ple  crop  cul3va3on   •   Defining  green  zone  of  Nay  Pyi  Taw   including  small  farms,  gardens,     grower’  markets,  recrea3on  areas      -­‐  Crop  specific  zones  (agro,  hor3,   medicinal  plants)    -­‐  Mul3ple  cropping  zone    -­‐  Livestock  zone    -­‐  Fishery  zone    -­‐  Food  industry  zone   •  Defined  based  on  soil  types,  clima3c,   socio-­‐economic,  cultural,  historical   condi3ons  
  9. 9. Food  Produc3on   •   Establishment  of  food   produc3on  industry   (small,  medium  &  large)              -­‐  Crop  based              -­‐  Livestock  based              -­‐  Fisheries  based     •  Based  on  PPP  approach   &  green  energy  
  10. 10. Food  Processing  industry    •   Post  harvest  technology   •   Value  added   •   Quality  assurance   •   Green  standards   Based  on  PPP  approach  &   energy  saving  
  11. 11. Distribu3on   •  supply  chain   •   short  range   •   rapid  and  efficient   •   low  cost   •   low  energy  consump3on   •   focus  on  green  areas  and   then  others  
  12. 12. Access  to  consumers    •  easy  access   •   diverse  access   •   cheaper  access   •   quality  access   •   green  living   •   green  jobs     Consumer  are  community   minded  and  respect  to   environments  
  13. 13. Food  waste    •  dispose  eco-­‐friendly   •   low  pollu3on   •   clean  environment   •   recycle   •   green  ethics   Consumer  are  community   minded  and  respect  to   environments  
  14. 14. Benefits  of  Green  Communi8es   Main  benefits;   •  s8mulate  economic  progress  via  agriculture   •  new  jobs  opportuni8es   •  reduced  the  risks  of  global  threats  such  as  climate   change,  loss  of  ecosystem  services  and  water   scarcity.     In  the  short  term              a.  "green  economy"  is  able  to  provide  GDP  growth,              b.  increasing  per  capita  income  and              c.    employment  in  the  same  or  even  higher  rates   than  the  tradi8onal  "brown"  economy.     In  the  medium  to  long  term            "green  economy"  will  overtake  "brown"  and  also   give  much  greater  benefits  for  the  environment  and   reduce  social  inequality.  
  15. 15. Outcomes  from  Green  Communi8es   Emergence of grower markets for their local products It could enhance the local consumption via green standards (e.g. organic products) Growers Consumers links
  16. 16. Value added foods via agro-based industry Flower shops Cash Crops growing
  17. 17. Challenges   •  Leaderships  and  strategies   •  Policy  uncertainty   •  Planning  processes   •  Finance     •  Regula8on   •  Investment   •  Public  Private  Partnership   •  Construc8on  of  suitable  infrastructure
