9788121212502: Plants and Trees That Generate Employment

ABOUT THE BOOK:- Focus of this book is not on tree planting as one may mistake but on generating abundant organic raw materials to be used in cottage, village, mini and micro enterprises. It is basically a guide for village entrepreneurs, social workers and multinationals which have to spend in India two percent of their net profit on public welfare and social activities. Gautama Budha said, TO BE A GOOD BUDDHIST ONE SHOULD PLANT SEVERAL TREES IN ONE'S LIFE TIME. This book tells what trees to plant to get many and more benefits out of them for human welfare. Plants and trees, weeds and reeds give the ten 'Fs' needed by people, namely, food, fruits, fodder, fibre, furniture, fertilizer, firewood, fresh-air, fresh-water, fabrics and more. Says the author : "PLANTS AND TREES CAN LIVE WITHOUT PEOPLE BUT PEOPLE CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT THEM". This book explains several medicinal plants as well and their uses and recommends cultivation and propagation of halophytes which grow in sea or saline water; 1560 species have already been identified by the university of Arizona. Humanity can survive by exploiting the sea and the saline tree. Water hyacinth which the author calls, GREEN GOLD, and many other aquatic weeds and reeds are given due importance in the book. Mushrooms, Soya beans, Salicornia and a score of other similar plants are recommended to change the face and economy of rural areas, especially in India, Africa and all under developed and developing countries. ABOUT THE AUTHOR:- The author an environmental scientist who was a director in the Indian ministry of Industry and advisor to the ILO and UNIDO of the United Nations had trained hundreds of officials deputed by the state governments to develop community development blocks of the CD Movement and also officials from Africa deputed by the International Labor Organizational during the fifties.

He was associated with the CD movement for ten years i.e. from the start to finish and then the movement was left to move forward with the wind in it's own sail. He gained his experience in promoting grassroot projects, community organizations, cooperatives and appropriate technology in several states in India including Kashmir where he was posted to help industries. He was industrial advisor to the Island republic of Seychelles and thereafter to some African countries and Nepal; received awards from the UK, USA and the UN and declared MAN OF YEAR 1995-1996 by the International Biographical Centre of Cambridge. Margaret Thatcher, Jimmy Carter and Ryan were honored with the Global environment achievement award by the UNEP in 1989-90. Ryan writes with the conviction that poor will remain poor if they depend on the technology of the rich and helping the poor to promote local organic raw materials, appropriate technology and nearby markets is the best way of helping them towards self sufficiency and progress. He has published several books on different subjects all pertaining to rural development and appropriate technology.
