Economic value to the farmers
The bamboo shoots are very tough. Once they have taken root, they keep on getting new shoots and growing. As a cluster there can be 50 shoots in 5 years and can grow to 15 feet in height. From these clusters, the bamboo can be cut as a need basis and sold in the market. Else, can be used in handicraft, matchsticks etc. The bamboo is a very tough grass and needs no maintenance to grow. This helps the farmers to have a very positive earning as time goes by. It increases the overall income of the farmers.
About the Project
Once the Bamboo saplings are given to the farmers, they shall also be provided with the technical knowledge to grow and sell Bamboo. The project is a long term one and support to the farmers shall be given for 3 years till the Bamboo becomes mature.
The trees are geotagged. The area boundary is marked using GPS. Farmer details along with the images. All the data is captured and stored through mobile apps directly from the field. Carbon fixing that is happening yearly is calculated by using the equations developed by the experts for different species in app and reports. Total transparency is maintained in getting the data, storing the data and analysing the data.
The impact that is being created by the project for wildlife and farmers is measured. All data is captured in regular intervals and the same is analysed by comparing with the previous data on the same parameters calculated a few months ago. The change is measured against the planned results.
The project reports are prepared and sent to the contributors. The report covers the following
1) Trees status as on the last visit made
2) Any mortality in the trees planted
3) Carbon fixed in MT from the start of the project
4) Economic impact on the farmers.
5) Ecological impact created.
