Leyte encourages the cultivation of bamboo in response to worldwide demand.

To meet the rising demand for bamboo byproducts on a global scale, towns in the province of Leyte are being urged to start producing bamboo.

Promoting bamboo’s social, economic, and environmental advantages, according to Palo Mayor Remedios Petilla, president of the League of Municipalities-Leyte, will give locals new sources of income and confront the effects of climate change.

Leyte is a good place for growing bamboo, but there is a supply problem. In an interview given on Tuesday at the launch of a bamboo display and exhibit at a hotel in Palo town, Petilla remarked, “We, in Palo town, have to discover strong bamboo in the mountains of Burauen and other towns.

“We’ll plant them in sloped places and next to streams. We can transform bamboo into anything we want in a few years, she noted.

The display includes three bamboo geodesic domes, bamboo furniture, office tables, huge bamboo planting supplies, and guadua (iron bamboo) planting materials.

The town will host a bamboo summit on Wednesday where experts will share their insights on advancing and developing the province’s bamboo sector.

Robert Palomares, a renowned bamboo furniture and product designer from Mindanao will present on “Engineered Bamboo Designs and Innovations.”

He will speak alongside Development Bank of the Philippines President Emmanuel Herbosa, who will present financing programs for local government to support the development of the bamboo industry, and National Security Adviser Clarita Carlos, who will discuss the effects of climate change on national security.
