  • The project named “Bamboo Oasis on Lands in Drought” (BOLD) is the first of its kind exercise in India (Launched in Rajasthan).
  • Project BOLD seeks to create bamboo-based green patches in arid and semi-arid land zones
  • This will serve the combined national objectives of reducing desertification and providing livelihood and multi-disciplinary rural industry support.

Why Bamboo

  • Bamboos grow very fast and in about three years’ time, they could be harvested.
  • Bamboos are also known for conserving water and reducing evaporation of water from the land surface, which is an important feature in arid and drought-prone regions.
