Background :
Environmental Bamboo Foundation / EBF is a non-profit foundation engaged in the
development and improvement of the quality of bamboo for people’s livelihood and
welfare by implementing a sustainable management system and community-based

EBF was founded in 1993 by Linda Garland (Indonesian Bamboo Ambassador) under the
name Yayasan Bambu Lingkungan Lestari (Environmental Sustainable Bamboo
Foundation). Concurred with the establishment of EBF, the Bamboo Planting Program in
the Flores region was initiated in 1992 as a form of post-earthquake recovery activity in
Flores. In 1995, in collaboration with the Government of East Nusa Tenggara (NTT), EBF
launched the One Million Bamboo Planting Program in Flores.

The scope of EBF’s activities includes community empowerment supported by research
on bamboo with its supporting components, both in terms of socio-economic,
environmental, as well as supporting science. In 2017, at the UNCCC – COP 23, EBF
launched the 1,000 Bamboo Villages Initiative program. The 1,000 Bamboo Villages
Initiative program is aiming to create a Restoration Economy where people, especially
rural farming communities can actively restore degraded and make a very good
economy for themselves their families and their communities in the process
The 1,000 Bamboo Villages Initiative program allows farmer cooperatives to produce
value-added bamboo products, at the village level, by creating an integrated forest to
the factory production system. Through the initiative EBF has developed a bamboo
forestry system called the Hutan Bambu Lestari / HBL system (Sustainable Bamboo
Forests system) which is a community-based bamboo forestry system to sustain a
sustainable bamboo industry in Indonesia. The 1,000 Bamboo Villages Initiative program
is a holistic system where native species are reintroduced to degraded lands and set
aside areas for food crops and cash crops within a larger agroforestry reality.
Environmental Bamboo Foundation believes that to successfully execute the 1,000
Bamboo Villages vision, there are Six Key Pathways that will have to be activated;

The First Pathway, Resource Investment and Mobilization, is to ensure investment in
village-level bamboo industry is attractive to the financial sector and Bamboo Villages
are a bankable asset class.

The Second Pathway, Grow Network of Resilient Bamboo Villages, is to ensure optimal,
long-term utilization of the landscape through establishing bamboo agroforestry systems
that are socially, financially, ecologically resilient.

The Third Pathway, Build Digital Business Solutions for Bamboo Agroforestry, is to
digitalize bamboo agroforestry industry for increased efficiency, professionalization and

The Fourth Pathway, Ensure Market Access Through Sustainable Certification, is to
ensure acceptability to market through an affordable verification of sustainably sourced
bamboo and agroforestry products.

The Fifth Pathway, Govern Bamboo Agroforestry Value Chains, is to partner with key
market players to ensure good governance and create a trusted, transparent equitable
value chain for bamboo agroforestry products.

The Sixth Pathway, Strengthen Public Sector Support, is to ensure bamboo agroforestry
industry is supported by key policy development and a regulatory environment that
enables a restorative economic growth of the sector

For this purpose, EBF invites experienced, energetic and passionate professional who
has growth mindset to join EBF’s Team in establishing 1.000 Bamboo Villages as
