UNGCI’s Sustainability Goals and Role of Neem in Sustainable Development of the Globe –
Kamal K Singh, ED, United Nations Global Compact India –
Human life depends on the earth as much as the ocean for our sustenance and livelihood. Plant life provides 80% of our human diet and we rely on agriculture as an important economic resource and means of development.
Forests account for 30% of the earth’s surface providing vital habitats for millions of species and important sources for clean air and water; as well as being crucial for combating climate change. The SDGs aim to conserve and restore the use of terrestrial ecosystems such as forests, wetlands, drylands and mountains by 2020. Halting deforestation is also vital to mitigating the impact of climate change. Urgent action must be taken to reduce the loss of natural habitats and biodiversity which are part of our common heritage.

As you are well aware, there are many highly toxic products being made and sold, especially in Agriculture, which have incredibly long life cycles – some up to 250,000 years – and could be described as helping to turn our planet into a toxic cocktail.
Whereas Neem, which is 100% biodegradable, presents a very strong alternative for insect control and all that is required is for the people of the world to demand that Neem be used to control insects in farming/gardening and when this comes to pass we will truly be able to say that
