Development and Diffusion of Technologies for Smallholder Bamboo & Rattan-based Producers from Asia to Africa Phase II

Ecuador, Ghana, India, Tanzania, and other sites in China, India and Latin America provide a huge potential for the growing bamboo and rattan market. As their current markets are undervalued, this project focused on the validation of bamboo and rattan technologies through action research projects, technology diffusion and product development activities, awareness raising and increased linkage between networks and markets. Training and workshops were conducted to train villages in the sustainable management of bamboo resources and the development of commercialized production chains with contracts made with the European market. In Ecuador the project enabled the construction of prototype schools and bamboo refugee shelters.
