In the current context, ‘Clean India’ and ‘Green India’ are as much vital as economic ideas because of its huge population. However, equal prioritization should be given to environmental protection in order to make India truly great!
To turn this into reality, we all need to work toward a greener India carefully. Over here, Cuba can be cited as one of the best examples where economy has been transformed into sustainable agriculture via urban and rural greenery program.
Cuba’s economy was heavily dependent on the Soviet oil and gas resources post-Soviet dissolution. As a result of which, they suffered hugely due to lack of credible supply.
Besides, Cuba also severely impacted due to economic sanctions imposed by the then US administration as a result of deteriorating diplomatic relationship and strong ideological and geopolitical differences between the two countries. The economy of Cuba came to almost a standstill position. A brilliant backup plan by the Cuban administration came as a survivor. Organic farming, urban and rural greening project, sustainable agriculture, social agro forestry, social agro-forestry and reduced use of fertilizers and pesticides and different non-renewable energy resources allowed the nation to curb its dependency on oil and gas.
