Theme: Bamboo and Environmental Management

Objective:

Bamboo is a versatile plant with numerous uses and utilities, including as a food, feed and fodder, energy, agricultural uses, and income opportunities through value addition. Its intrinsic eco-system benefits makes it a suitable crop for landscape restoration. This session will discuss landscape restoration with bamboo, a fast growing species that can rapidly re-green degraded landscapes and provide valuable revenue to smallholder farmers from annual selective harvesting as little as three years after planting. Bamboo is considered a high potential crop for landscape restoration in several countries, and can contribute towards several important development and environmental targets.
