Between 2003 and 2008, INBAR and local partners have implemented bamboo action research in several of Ecuador’s least developed areas, with the aim of promoting bamboo as an alternative source of income for poor rural households. The programme has focused on developing and validating pro-poor, bamboo technologies in Latin America, disseminating research findings and best practices nationally and regionally, setting up micro-credit schemes and regulations for NTFPs, and developing market and trading initiatives for ARS-supported rural micro-enterprises. More than 1,000 rural households, six microenterprises, students and teachers from four universities, six NGOs (technicians and representatives), 9 local governments and around 30 architects are participating and benefiting from different activities in the bamboo value chain, in micro-credit and in training in rural and urban areas.
