Dutch-Sino-East Africa Bamboo Development Project

This programme builds on Chinese and Dutch expertise in bamboo value chain development, product design, marketing and standardisation to help East Africa unlock the vast potential of its indigenous bamboo resources while contributing to green economic growth, international trade and investment between Europe, China and East Africa. The expected results will contribute to poverty reduction, green economic growth and climate change mitigation and adaptation through the development and improvement of industrial bamboo value chains in East Africa.
