South-South knowledge transfer strategies for scaling up pro-poor bamboo livelihoods, income generation and employment creation and environmental management in Africa

This project builds on a previous IFAD-funded project “Mainstreaming Pro-Poor Livelihoods and Addressing Environmental Degradation with Bamboo in Eastern & Southern Africa’ that was implemented between 2010 and 2013.
While the project’s first phase enabled the identification of important resources and development of demonstration sites, the second phase builds on established knowledge to mainstream bamboo as a source of income along the entire value chain from growing, processing and distribution. Due to the availability of crucial local knowledge in bamboo development, the second phase also focuses on the establishment of important partnerships with local stakeholders to enhance and consolidate the three African beneficiary countries.
