UN adopts Bangladesh’s resolution on Natural Plant Fibres

Staff Reporter:

Second Committee of the United Nations General Assembly has unanimously adopted Bangladesh’s one of the flagship Resolutions entitled ‘Natural Plant Fibres and Sustainable Development.’
“This resounding support is a testament to the international community’s recognition of Bangladesh’s un-wavering commitment to environmental protection and sustainable development through the thoughtful and sustainable use of natural fibers like jute, cotton, and sisal,” a press release received here yesterday said.
The resolution, adopted at UN headquarters New York on Tuesday, urged member states, to champion sustainable production, consumption, and use of natural plant fibres for sustainable development.
It emphasized political support, resource mobilization, capacity-building, and effective management to drive momentum for the sustainable production, consumption, and use of natural plant fibres at the global, regional, national, and local levels.
The resolution also recognized natural fibers as a commendable alternative to synthetic and plastic-based products, highlighting that the production, consumption, and use of natural fibres can contribute to achieving the 2030 agenda.
While introducing the resolution, the representative of Bangladesh Mission to the UN in New York ex-pressed gratitude to all delegations for their active engagement, flexibility, and contribution to strength-ening the resolution and achieving consensus.
In his statement, the representative stated that the government of Bangladesh, under the able and vision-ary leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, took the resolution very seriously.
He highlighted the complementary role of natural plant fibres in mitigating climate change and preserv-ing biodiversity.
The Bangladesh representative also called for international cooperation to ensure the full implementation of the resolution.
Bangladesh first tabled this resolution in 2019 at the 74th United Nations General Assembly and since then this resolution has been adopted by UN members bi-annually.
