Living in Harmony with Nature
Bamboo is an effective way of managing watersheds because it regulates the quantity and quality of water and also serves as a sediment control system that prevents the reduction of flow in rivers.
In addition, bamboo can be sold for handicraft, which gives this program both environmental and economic value.
In 2014, we continued bamboo planting to halt land degradation along the rivers in the Tabalong and Balangan districts. Yayasan Adaro Bangun Negeri (YABN), the Adaro Bangun Negeri Foundation, plays a key role in educating and training local communities on the economics and environmental benefits of bamboo planting.
In 2015, we plan to provide 5,000 seeds and the location to plant bamboo trees, and form two groups at Tabalong and Balangan districts so that this program can run sustainably.
