Sichuan Sustainable Bamboo Enterprise Programme

On May 12, 2008, an earthquake struck Sichuan Province in China, claiming over 80, 000 lives. 1.15 villagers lost their agriculture depending incomes with a direct economic loss of 845.1 billion RMB. To reestablish the local economy and provide important livelihood and reconstruction opportunities, the Sichuan Sustainable Bamboo Enterprise Programme was established and run over several phases. The first phase established demonstration enterprises, an exhibition center and provided training for communities. The second phase provided demonstration training through households and cooperatives. The third phase upgraded bamboo enterprise work by developing a business to business (B2B) model as well as networking and marketing opportunities through technology transfer and local capacity building. The fourth and fifth phase have up-scaled successful practice models and experiences gained from the previous phases to promoting linkages between Zhejiang and Sichuan Provinces.
