  28. 30. Poverty cycle
  29. 31. River bank erosion in West Rapti
  30. 32. Innovation and Excellence
  31. 33. Bamboo porcupine <ul><li>Sprit and soul of eco hydraulic </li></ul><ul><li>Use of low cost natural material </li></ul><ul><li>Labor intensive and lessening unemployment </li></ul><ul><li>Can provide habitat for water animal and crop </li></ul>
  32. 34. Bamboo porcupine <ul><li>River bank erosion is a single problem in Rivers of alluvial plain </li></ul><ul><li>River bank protection is avoid bank erosion by current attack </li></ul><ul><li>Structures are expensive, massive non compatible with environment and eco hydraulic </li></ul>
  33. 35. Bamboo porcupine
  34. 36. Bamboo porcupine <ul><li>According to FAO 75 bamboo genus and 250 species and known as villager wood </li></ul><ul><li>Bamboo can used more under water </li></ul><ul><li>Protects river bank from current attack </li></ul><ul><li>Most suitable condition are Suspended sediments and velocity of current<1.5 m/se </li></ul>
  35. 37. Bamboo porcupine Structure Material Economy Durability Cost of construction, Per m run Additional benefit Cement concrete, Gabion Imported Factor for trade deficit Gabion up to 5 yrs chances of rusting 2x Not appreciable Bamboo piles or Porcupine Locally produced Internal resource generation 3 Yrs when exposed to weather change. More than 3 yrs when kept under earth or water x Eco-Hydraulic Environment friendly for aquatic animal and crops, protein food stuff production
  36. 38. Bamboo Porcupine
  37. 39. Bamboo porcupine
  38. 40. Bamboo porcupine Rapti river
  39. 41. DWIDP would like to network from all concerned. Thank You
