FROM RESEARCH TO DEVELOPMENT: INBAR'S STRATEGY 2015-2030

INBAR's programme, target outcomes and services to Member States are guided by its Strategy, 'From Research to Development'. The Strategy was developed in a consultative process and through a study of key issues, with INBAR Member States and other stakeholders, including members of national and international research communities, ministry staff in INBAR Member State non-governmental organisations, development agencies and the private sector. The result was the 'Strategy 2015-2030'.

INBAR's primary task for 2015 to 2030 is to carry the message of the promise of bamboo and rattan as practical and economically attractive options, which can provide sustainable solutions to the challenges of future development. The Strategy is designed to help countries address these issues as they develop their national sustainable development plans. INBAR provides solutions and advice that have been tested and used for over 20 years in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
