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, draws 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.
