A few years ago a young Frenchman, Yoann Coppin owner of La Plantation Bemasaoandro started applying the Vetiver System to mitigate various environmental problems. Recently he has been contracted to stabilize lavakas associated with a railway and electrical pylons. For more details see this file.
You should note that these applications are not for the fainthearted. The applications involve complex quality planting techniques and design.
