South-South Initiative Integrated Bamboo Based Development Latin America

In Peru and other regions of Latin America where the bamboo sector is even more informal and fragmented than in Ecuador, many local farmers and entrepreneurs lack awareness of bamboo’s potential for livelihood development and environmental protection. These farmers lack the skills necessary to sustainably harvest and manage bamboo resources. In addition, rural producers lack the technical capacity and knowledge to process bamboo. The project developed baseline data that was used to develop demonstration sites for bamboo management practices. Value chain training was also provided to existing and new bamboo product producers and cross-country markets established.
