INBAR will be hosting a side event at this Forum: ‘From policy to action: forest and economic revival with bamboo‘. The event will draw on two thematic priorities of UNFF16: ‘Enhancing forest-based economic, social and environmental benefits’ and ‘Reversing the loss of forest cover’.
This side event will present three case studies from Africa, Asia and Latin America, about the use of bamboo for forest and landscape restoration, and as a tool for livelihood and poverty reduction. The case studies will focus specifically on: product innovations and industrial value chains in Asia; energy value chain in Africa; and bamboo housing in Latin America.
The event will have one keynote speech, and three expert speakers. The presentations will be followed by a Q&A session.
