Concept Note: India has a rich resource of bamboo next only to China with over 128 species in 18 genera covering an area of about 9.57 million hectare (approx. 13% of the total forest area of the country). Being a source material for livelihood, bamboo also plays a vital role in environmental amelioration, bio diversity preservation, soil and water conservation, waste purification. With continuous rise in demand, bamboo resources in their natural habitat are dwindling due to over exploitation, shifting cultivation practices, poor and unscientific management techniques and extensive forest fires etc. The proposed side event will throw light on these issues and propose possible mitigation strategies. In addition to this, the event will provide solutions for policy and legal bottlenecks required for enhancing livelihood opportunities through bamboo.
