Greening Business through Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services
International Journal of Research in Sociology and Anthropology (IJRSA)
As the World engages in a period of post-war reconstruction, cross-border channels of communication are integrated in environmental care and protection. With most citizens getting exposed to the stark geopolitical and cross-cultural imbalances, actors have emerged on the scene seeking local knowledge and technical skills of environmental care. Consequently, it becomes crucial for scholars and professionals in the region to engage in academic and professional discourses to analyze and examine the importance of environmental care by greening business through biodiversity and ecosystem services. Waste is generated at several stages in the production and consumption process: the earlier waste reduction is applied, the more efficient and sustainable results are achieved (Eco-analysis). Sanitation is a new approach through which systematic sanitation services are built and delivered to the community. Unhygienic sanitary facilities for excreta disposal, poor management of solid and liquid wastes and inadequate hygienic practices are responsible for a large portion of disease burden. Sound environmental health conditions are a key pre-requisite to enhance quality of life, to impact positively on sustainable economic growth and to reduce poverty. To increase sanitation coverage the policy can build upon scalable sanitary achievements. The key challenge is therefore to combine sensitization with targeted support for infrastructure development in order to bring sanitation coverage to scale and agro-forestry as an ecosystem.
