‘Bamboo for Ecosystems Restoration and Green Growth’: INBAR at UNCCD COP 15

INBAR will take part in the 15th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 15) of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD), which takes place from 9 to 20 May 2022.

In the hybrid session ‘Bamboo for Ecosystems Restoration and Green Growth‘, INBAR will showcase bamboo’s usefulness as a nature-based tool to stabilise degraded soils, raise the water table and prevent landslides. The side event will discuss the environmental, social and economic benefits of using bamboo for land restoration, by providing data, policies, and practical economic examples that serve as valuable case studies to inform policymakers’ decisions and future research.

This will be a hybrid event.
