Bamboo is an essential part of the natural environment and important part of the sociocultural and
economic life in the North East Region (NER) of India. There is lack of consistent and reliable data on almost all aspects of bamboo i.e. area, production,
consumption and trade. This gap has implications for planning and development of the sector in the region.
Hence, it should be addressed on an urgent basis. This report aims to assess the bamboo sector in North East India and make recommendations for further action.
