The Community Enterprise Development Project, also known as the “Design Centre Philippines”, was set up by INBAR to develop
new processes for bamboo component and product production. The project has focused on promoting village-level production and
alleviating rural poverty. To achieve this, the project has veered away from heavy capital investment in machinery. This has
resulted in the development of heat-setting resins (like polyester resins), as well as the introduction of fibreglass mats and hemp
into traditional village-produced bamboo outputs, such as culm slats, split halves and woven mats. Through these developments,
the Philippines ARS has successfully enabled rural producers to access higher-value furniture and resort markets.
