The INBAR Action Research Site (ARS) programme in Kumasi, Ghana, was established in 2004 to demonstrate the potential that bamboo has to provide livelihoods for income generation. The ARS works through demonstration enterprise, which enable more effective and wider application of bamboo technologies to allow the rural poor to produce and process bamboo more effectively and to participate in and benefit from, the market economy at reduced risks and through economies of scale in operations. The general objective of this project is to develop and trial small bamboo-based businesses in Ghana as a means of demonstrating the effectiveness of bamboo products to contribute to sustainable income generation. For this purpose, a trial model of community-based bamboo furniture makers – called Akyawkrom Bamboo Furniture Makers Association (ABFMA) was set up.
