In recognition of bamboo’s potential in Ecuador as a material for the construction of earthquake-resistant structures, in addition to the recent publication of a government guide on the sustainable management and use of bamboo, INBAR has co-organised a training scholarship for 29 Ecuadorians.

The Seminar, on Innovative Uses of Bamboo in Post-earthquake Reconstruction for Ecuador, is being carried out from 8 August to 8 September 2017 in  China.
