This Working Paper explores how bamboos can help us a resource to mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change by: absorbing and storing carbon; protecting forests and watersheds; insulating environments against extreme weather; providing low-cost, green housing and infrastructure; providing cleaner biofuels; providing renewable, sustainable resource for generating incomes; and increasing the range […]
The Malayalam translation of the INBAR publication: Transporting, Storing and Filtering Water Using Local Resources: A Design Manual.
In July 2012, the Canadian Federal Department of Environment awarded INBAR a new project working with communities in Ethiopia and Nepal to develop new technologies for storing, transporting, and filtering water resources. The project aims to scale up the use of local resources, such as bamboo, gravel and sand to alleviate the pressures caused by […]
While there are many international guidelines for forest carbon assessment, which provide specific details for measuring trees, very little information exists on measuring the carbon sequestration potential of bamboo. This report provides the underlying principles and guidelines with regard to the following: application range, design, eligibility, silvicultural practices, selection of carbon pools, greenhouse gas emission […]
Non-timber forest products (NTFPs) contribute to livelihoods of about 2 billion poorest of the rural and urban poor, and are among the most valuable plant resources for present and future food security. They provide food, fuel, medicine and incomes, and keep traditional knowledge alive. NTFPs have an important role in forests and – consequently – […]
The long-term vision of this project executed for the period 2006-2013 is to turnaround the dependence of local livelihoods from tobacco farming to cultivation of alternative crops in Kenya. This final project report for Phase II covers a summary of activities undertaken for the whole project period of 19th December 2009 to 18th June 2013. […]
The 36th edition of INBAR’s Latin American and Caribbean Regional Newsletter in Spanish.
Until recently, quantification methodologies and bamboo-specific examples in climate change mitigation were limited. To harness the untapped potential of bamboo for mitigation, INBAR and partners have made significant progress in developing methodologies for bamboo carbon accounting in an afforestation projects. In this publication, INBAR builds on previous work by introducing some of the latest developments […]
This Transfer of Technology Model is aimed at providing farmers, households, communities, and micro small charcoal producing enterprises with basic information on bamboo charcoal production and utilisation, with special emphasis on brick kiln construction and operation. It outlines the basic activities involved in bamboo charcoal production and takes the reader through a stepwise construction and […]
