Bamboo can be a powerful ally for land restoration. This strategic resource thrives on problem soils and steep slopes, helps to conserve soil and water, and improves land quality. Its potential is significant – if its benefits are recognized by decision makers and planners.
Bamboo is an asset to any landscape in which it appears. When strategically placed, the plant forms part of an ‘ecological infrastructure’ that is increasingly acknowledged as a cost-effective way to restore degraded landscapes and adapt to risks posed by climate change.
