BAMBOO PLANTATION

BAMBOO PLANTATION

Executive Order 26 or the National Greening Program (NGP) has made a significant progress in advancing its manifold goals by means of bamboo and the convergence initiative among the key government departments. The DENR recognizes bamboo as a strategic resource to combat climate change while providing additional livelihood to the community. The Department of National Defense (DND) takes the opportunity to use its vast military reservation for other productive uses. In 2013, with the help of the NGP funding, the two agencies joined forces to develop a huge and contiguous plantation of bamboo in Fort Ramon Magsaysay Military Reservation (FRMMR), Nueva Ecija.
