The United Nations Asian and Pacific Centre for Agricultural Engineering and Machinery
(APCAEM) aims at promoting sustainable agriculture development for the eradication of
poverty by guaranteeing environmental sustainability. Such agro-based environment-friendly
technology is termed as Green Technology (GT).
Literatures show GT encompasses a continuously evolving group of methods or materials,
from techniques for generating energy to non-toxic cleaning products. It is that innovation
which reduces waste by changing patterns of production and consumption. It is also defined
as environmental healing technology, which reduces environmental damages created by the
products and technologies for peoples' conveniences. Most of the businesses may not be very
excited to “go green” by reducing emissions since their motto is to make money not to save
the planet. The global strategy should be to help businesses do both.
The overall objective of the study was to conduct feasibility study by summarizing the
overview of the status of the application of GT in selected member countries of APCAEM.
The objective was also to initiate GT for bringing innovation and changes in daily life by
meeting the needs of present generation without damaging or depleting biodiversity for the
future generation. The present study therefore, explains link between the applied technologies
and their relationships with environment-friendly agriculture; poverty reduction; rural
environmental concerns; rural income and gender dimensions.
The feasibility study attempts to identify the gaps, if there are any, in the application of GT
and attempts to justify their feasibility based on the results from experiments through
agricultural and environmental technologies. The study identifies and assesses appropriate
technologies; reviews policies; reviews impact assessment and recommends available
options. Furthermore, the GT application is reviewed by further elaborating the issues on how...
