So this petition is trying to take one action that pune city need bamboo plantation in and around to this infrastructures.

Why Bamboo?? Cultivating the bamboo could help Pune to mitigate the impacts of climate change. Bamboo is very effective way to rehabilitate degraded land and absorb and store carbon dioxide, adding that citizens could reap economic benefits from cultivating the plant.One cluster of the bamboo could store upto approx. 5000liters of water demonstrating its role in soil and water management.One hectre of bamboo could absorb up to 50 tons of green house gas per year.

Agricultural Sector: Bamboo can also be cultivated in wide range of soil types making it easy for local citizen to manage. Also this will help to add employment opportunities  to agriculturists in Maharashtra. 

Green Urban Footprint:Road infrastructure is growing around the city,so planting the bamboo grooves near by footpath and road side will help to reduce  heat island effect rapidly.Also pollution level will be controlled in future. Natural riverstream and soil condition will improve in city area.Pune metro infrastructure is developing in the city, also needed bamboo plantation around the corridor which help controlling air pollution.

So this city 'Queen of Deccan' will save from climate change in the future very smoothly.
