GLF Amazonia 2021

Bamboo/Guadua Ecosystem Services and their relationship with the Amazonian livelihoods

Sep 21, 2021 | 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Session language



Colombia, Ecuador and Peru are among the most biodiversity-rich regions in the world, particularly in species of bamboo native to the Americas. Communities in the region have known about bamboo’s unique socioecological benefits for more than 10,000 years, including its vital contribution to several ecosystem services of provisioning, regulation and recreation. This session, hosted by INBAR, will draw on the rich knowledge of local communities in the Amazon to discuss how bamboo can contribute to a new circular development paradigm, and reactivate the economy in the wake of COVID-19.
