Experts attending a workshop here on evolving a bamboo policy for the country called for the formation of a Bamboo Board after other commodity boards to free bamboo from its current constraints and to realize its potential.

The workshop was organized as part of the ongoing Kerala Bamboo Fest 2014 and in collaboration with Kerala State Bamboo Mission, Centre for Civil Society and South Asian Bamboo Foundation with support from Friedrich Naumann Foundation, said a statement issued by Kerala State Bamboo Mission.

Member of Kerala State Planning Board and vice chairman of Kerala State Bamboo Mission C.P. John, who inaugurated the workshop, said India now needed a “strong legislative framework to facilitate the bamboo sector”.

Creation of a legislative framework, which would define bamboo and deal with harvesting regulations and transit permits, was also discussed during the workshop. Inclusion of bamboo in housing schemes, sanitation campaigns, community and livelihood enterprises as well as cluster development for bamboo were other issues highlighted during the workshop.
