Bamboo Resource Development in Northern Floodplains of India, Bahraich
CIBART’s activities in the project includes assessment of bamboo resources in 11 districts, networking at state and national levels, training and capacity building of farmers and artisans, and development of bamboo products such as storage units and boats (the usefulness of these boats was demonstrated during the Gopalganj floods, as they helped rescue 1,200 people)….more

Farmers had not been successful in raising bamboo plantations. CIBART targeted farmers, community members, bamboo artisans and government officials. The focus was on direct involvement of all stakeholders, particularly the communities. Meetings were held; awareness programmes conducted, trainings and technical sharing done; and fairs and other interactions were organized. Soon farmers began to be interested and for them we identified plantation sites and helped in preparation of nurseries in their fields.

CIBART identified Bambus Tulda as a suitable raw material for a variety of products and procured seeds from Tripura for nursery beds on farmers’ lands.

Outcomes
• Awareness creation on the benefits of bamboo
• Bamboo plantation management and harvesting for farmers
• Nurseries on farmers lands as a business enterprise
• Pechan cards from the DC (Handicrafts) were procured for 133 artisans
• Bamboo boats developed for rescue in flood situations in this flood prone area
• Products with local applications developed – large bamboo agricultural storage units; bamboo platforms for irrigation tanks; bamboo boats;
  and bamboo toilets
• Training cum production activities for the above products
• Mapping of bamboo resources and artisans.
