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

This project addressed socio-economic, policy and technical issues which serve as strong barriers for the bamboo and rattan users in Asia and Africa. The project successfully incorporated bamboo and rattan components into the design of loan projects, while developing Transfer of Technology Models (TOTEMs) to support adoption of bamboo and rattan in developing countries. Five studies were examined that determined the economic aspects of bamboo and rattan that can be used for further policy implementation. Marketing strategies were put into development and resource mapping determined the traditional and current use of bamboo by indigenous people. These were further evaluated for their usefulness for the development of rural economies. Lastly, sectorial support studies were completed that evaluated the usability of bamboo such as for fisheries in India
