An introduction to the Sustainable Land Management Programme, led by INBAR and funded by the World Bank, which is taking place in Ethiopia.
Because of their fast growth rates, giant woody bamboos are already considered effective carbon dioxide absorbers. Carbon can be further sequestered in durable harvested bamboo products and even higher carbon emissions reduction is possible if bamboo products replace non-renewable, carbon-intensive alternatives. Research so far on the total carbon sequestration and carbon emissions reduction potential of […]
Rattan terminologies vary across different languages and from country to country. This lack of standardised terminologies deters technical exchange, as well as the trading of rattans and cane products on the international market. This book introduces the reader to basic terminologies used in rattan industries across the globe, and should be of assistance to rattan […]

China is one of many countries which has used afforestation subsidies to encourage development of their bamboo industry. This report considers three main types of bamboo afforestation subsidies; incentives, service subsidies and compensation subsidies, though there are overlaps between these categories. The report outlines the policy context, presents the findings from three case studies conducted […]
Since its establishment in 2014, the INBAR Construction Task Force has successfully built an effective mechanism to develop international standards, disseminate bamboo building knowledge and support global coordination on sustainable bamboo construction. The INBAR Construction Task Force Newsletter aims to share the latest research, project and publication information related to the key experts of the […]
Even though bamboos have already been extensively used in many national and sub-national restoration programmes, public information about bamboo-based landscape restoration initiatives, and the reasons for their success or failure, is limited. This synthesis report aims to address these knowledge gaps, by collating evidence from nine case studies across China, Colombia, Ghana, India, Nepal, South […]
