Arief is greening the world by planting bamboo. As our timber resources decline, bamboo is becoming an important alternative. But how do we ensure that we can grow enough bamboo to meet the growing demand? Arief wants to establish 1000 Bamboo Villages. By empowering communities to plant and harvest bamboo sustainably, we can help them improve their livelihoods, restore degraded landscapes, and mitigate the impact of climate change. Tune in to learn more about his approach towards sustainable bamboo forestry.
