Plant bamboo in the Philippines. This project will focus on carbon drawdown by planting fast-growing bamboo. Over the last century, the Philippines has suffered a staggering amount of deforestation, from some 70% forest coverage down to just 20% today, largely due to illegal logging activities. The impacts of deforestation have been felt throughout the country, causing food shortages, poor water quality, landslides, and the endangering of wildlife habitat. Since the 1990s the Philippines has promoted reforestation efforts to push back against this loss of forest coverage, conserving wildlife habitats in the last remaining endangered forests, and developing creative solutions with nature and people in mind.
